Algeria The South - Country of the Touareg


I had the oppurtunity to travel into this outstanding part of the world a few times already. With its wonderful big sand seas - called ergs - and the black colored mountains of the Tassili`n Ajjer.

Rock paintings and carvings in an outstanding quality. Centuries by centuries before our time, carved and painted in solid rock.

This trip is not just a 4x4 adventure. We will walk in the mountains and visit places you only can reach by foot. A hike to the Assekrem with ist nearby heights of 2,800 m and the christian padres who live up there in a monastery will as well be a wonderful part as the Touareg village Djanet in the south of the country as well as Tamanrasset. There will be trekks by foot and outstanding dune crossings 4x4 in a mixture. Enough offroad adventure guaranteed. Nearly 25 years of experience around the globe will let you have an outstanding adventure.

---

We will have nights under the stars and every now and than in a hotel along our way. The culture and people living there is what we visit in their country. Together with this outstanding landscape, it will be an adventure you might remember your entire life.

This could be the opportunity to travel together with a trusted touareg travel agency I know since a long time. Working in South Algeria and the Niger. They will accompany us during our expedition in Algeria. This is a need if one wants to travel in this northern african country. You like to be part of this expedition? Please feel free to contact me via email anytime.

Talking about the costs. It is not hundret percent sure how much the total amount will be.

But, you will need a fully equiped 4x4 size of a Landcruiser or Landrover Defender.

I prefer travelling in small groups. As these expeditions are for most of the people once in a lifetime adventures, the past showed that this is the most relaxing kind of travelling.


And, we do not conquer regions, we visit them.
