Do’s & Don’ts in oasis

The desert is a benign environment – until you make a mistake- then it can be lethal. In summer you can expect to last less than three days without water. In winter, much longer, probably a week. It is the very
lack of water that makes the desert a dangerous place to make a mistake. Also its remoteness. I would not include dangers from snakes and scorpions because they are rarer here than in more built up areas of the Mediterranean. I have seen more scorpions in the South of France than in the Sahara!
