The Sahara

The Great Desert

It is the World’s largest Hot Region, and One Of The Harshest Environments On The Planet with dramatic scenery, a place to experience authentic camel trek.

The Sahara, (Arabic for ‘the great desert) is made up of barren, hard, rocky plateaus. It engulfs most of North Africa, large part of Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Sudan and Tunisia.

Most of the Sahara Desert is undeveloped and features a varied topography with little water or vegetation. Most of its landscape has been shaped over time by wind, and includes sand dunes, sand seas called ergs, barren stone plateaus, gravel plains, dry valleys and salt flats.

Not surprisingly, the Sahara Desert has one of the lowest population densities on the planet, with just 2.5 million people. The majority of the people are nomads and Arabic mostly spoken. Camels, are used because they have soft feet that are aligned making it easier to move quickly and easily through sand. Camels also have the ability to go for up to 17 days without food or water.

The Sahara offers rich desert experience with tour options: desert safaris, hiking, camel treks and nomadic trading caravans. Travelers dine with local desert inhabitants surrounded by dunes would be an – unforgettable, authentic experience.
