Again, we returned to lovely Al-Ula, where the bivouac was set up for two nights. This is a high-security camp that is assembled each day ahead of the rally and acts as a home base until the last competitor moves on; then, the whole place is torn down and moved by aircraft and trucks to the following location. Everyone at the Dakar Rally eats, sleeps, and even showers together in the bivouac. You need a badge or wristband to get through the front gate.
