Once you are deep into the Sahara, you will officially be "off the grid" - outside the range of any mobile network and away from civilization, leaving you to manage on your own. You'll spend two days in the desert, staying overnight in camps and dining on handmade food cooked by locals and nomads from the region. During this time you'll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience being virtually alone among the dunes of the Sahara, at peace and removed from the modern world.

Once you're out of the desert, you'll have the chance to witness the Star Wars saga first-hand, observing real leftover movie sets and taking in the wonderful Tunisian scenery that represented Tatooine in the film.
