We arrive at Béter Village, from colonial times, eaten and destroyed by dunes. We make a pause on this peculiar site. We take our horses again and walk in Béter dunes undulations. We come back to the Village by crossing all the main Oasis, looking the native farms and cultures under the fresh native trees’ shade.
