Sahara. Few names contain so many legends, childhood dreams of traveling, romantic stories, and real human drama. When you set out on a several-day journey around Tassili n'Ajjer, you open the pages of an unusual and colorful story: about the land of caravans, smugglers, romantic travelers and extremely hostile to humans.
During the trip, there will not be two days alike. Every day a different landscape, new impressions and a fresh dose of positive energy.
The dunes of Erg Admer are called the sea of sand by the locals. Indeed, sand dunes seem to stretch to the horizon. We will climb one of them to watch the stunning sunset. That night we camp directly under the dunes.
The world's most important collection of 15,000 prehistoric rock drawings and carvings, illustrating several thousand years of Sahara history. A fascinating journey through the millennia.
A sea of red sand and majestic black sandstone rocks. Spectacular and unique landscapes that are best admired from the tops of the nearby dunes.
The Tassili n'Ajjer Park is dazzling with an endless wealth of landscapes. Tikoubaine plays a large part in this. Gallery of rock columns of fancy shapes, arches, cliffs, tunnels. This is one of my favorite places to camp - under the rock arch called "the elephant".
There are debates as to which of the performances is more stunning - east or west in the Tin Merzouga dunes. Climb to the top of the dune and make your own mind.
For over three thousand years, in the first days of the month of Ashura, the Tuaregs of the Algerian Djanet and the surrounding area have been celebrating Sebiba. The ceremony is played by disguised dancers surrounded by solemnly dressed women singing traditional songs. It is colorful, festive and extremely interesting.
A canyon unusual, picturesque and sacred to the local Tuareg. An oasis of peace, a source of water and shade for those traveling through the desert. And at the end of the canyon - a lake!
A magical, almost fairy-tale place. Tuarene villages, guelta, burnt palm grove, temporary river bed, mouflons on steep slopes. A special day in a unique place. It must not be missed.
Probably everyone has already ridden a camel - most often around the photographer taking souvenir photos. A real caravan journey through the desert awaits everyone here. It's gonna be hot.
We forget that sand is only a small part of the desert. You will see all the faces of the Sahara, including the rocky hamada and the deep canyon of Indaren. And the amazing Ihrir oasis at its bottom.

Just a small part of the adventures and views that participants of the expeditions share.
The program of a trip to Algeria includes maximum attractions in the desert! And breaks for a moment of rest. Special August edition - 2 days of participation in the Tuareg Sebiba festival!
The beginning of the trip. We get on the plane to Djanet. We arrive after midnight - the first night in a hotel in Djanet.
After breakfast, we start our adventure - visiting Janat and visiting the bazaar. Later, we drive the cars towards Tadrartu. First of all, the first of the famous attractions of Tassili n'Ajjer - the petroglyph of "crying cows" in Oued Tigherghart. We set up a camp just 100 meters from it, so it will be possible to admire how it changes depending on the position of the sun.
We reach the Oued Indjaren gorge - here, sheltered from the influence of the weather, numerous paintings and petroglyphs are perfectly preserved. Dinner and camping.
Breakfast and the next day begins: the direction of Moul n'Aga - a maze of canyons winding among the rocks and the majestic rock wall - Le Catedrale. During the day we will climb the dunes to admire the vastness of this amazing landscape of sand and rocks from above. We will take a closer look at the spire of the Moul n'Aga rock. Overnight at a campsite at the foot of the great dunes.
It is worth getting up for sunrise (not so early) and going for a walk through the dunes covered with exceptional morning light. After breakfast, Tin Merzouga - majestic red sand dunes dotted with single rocks and sandstone rock castles. One of those views that will never be forgotten. From the great dune of Tin Merzouga, we admire the unique view of the sunset over Tadrart. To be remembered for a lifetime.
Breakfast and we head towards Tikobauine, we leave Tadrart and go to Janat. We fill up fuel and water, and replenish our food supplies. And a shower. We stop for a camping at the famous "elephant" rock in Tikobauine. We go for a walk among the rocks and admire their color in the light of the setting sun.
Another day in the desert - including Neolithic tombs. We reach the sacred canyon of the Tuareg - Essendillene with its picturesque walls, the guelta (lake) and the oleander forest. Lunch in Essendilene, under a hundred-year-old tree. A campsite under the Erg Admer dunes. We climb to the top of one of them to admire the sunset on the sea of dunes stretching to the horizon.
In the morning we sit down on the camels and head towards the village of Borj el Houas. Ahead of us is a solid dose of camel adventure.
After lunch, we go to Dider, where we will admire one of the oldest rock carvings, including the antelope, which was on the most popular Algerian banknote - 1,000 dinars.
Stąs is close to the Indjaren canyon and the Ihrir oasis. Camping and dinner at Taset.
We move towards the Fadnoun plateau and the northern part of Tassili, rarely visited by tourists. Today, completely different landscapes. We reach the Oued Aharhar gorge through the stone desert (hamada). An exceptionally picturesque place, covered with palm trees and oleanders, with a few Tuareg villages. We will also drive through an amazing burnt palm grove. Dinner and overnight camping in Afara.
We leave Afara towards the south, admiring the unusual shape of the mountain of the same name. We reach Akareker - erosion has created unique rock forms here: huge boulders that look like giant potatoes, were stacked by nature one on another, resembling a giant toy. Tazat camp and dinner.
We continue to the south admiring the unusual rock formations connected with numerous dunes. There is also a hamada on the way. Overnight in Timghrasse, among huge rock outliers.
Breakfast, we break camp and go to Djanet. Although it is a return, there will be extraordinary landscapes, stops for photos and a moment of reflection.
In the evening, we will have a special farewell dinner and Tuareg music!
In the morning for a self-guided tour of Djanet and last-minute souvenir shopping. Transfer to the airport. At 3 p.m. flight to Algiers. On site around 6:30 PM. End of the trip.

Every good opinion is happy. And it adds enthusiasm.
The organizer Jarek Skowron and Tuareg guides provided us with a two-week dream trip. Wonderful, diverse landscapes, immeasurable space and ... silence that sometimes rang in the ears. Jarek showed us places that captivated us, he shared with us his admiration for the desert and he infected us with it.
Sahara full of surprises. We smell of smoke, freedom, a smile does not leave our faces. It is worth living for such moments, to face the sun. For such moments you need to leave your busy everyday life. Thank you to Jarek and his wonderful team for organizing these memories for us.
The great advantage of the desert is ... the lack of Chinese tourists. And no Russian tourists. No tourists. There are no bosses. There is no IT. There is no HR. There are no bureaucrats of all specialties. There are no committees and confessions. No signal. Money loses its magic here. This desert is cool place. (...)
Thank you outventure.life and Jarek for a great trip.
For several years, a very large album of photos and videos of expeditions to the Sahara has already been collected. Everyone brought memory cards packed to the brim just to take as much of this atmosphere and views as possible.
It's hard to share everyone here. It's hard to choose photos. We would always like to add something else.
Camels, ships of the desert. Inextricably linked in our imaginations with the legend of the desert. We will taste a camel trip, if you like - a bit longer than the trip around the photographer.
Tassili n'Ajjer's prehistoric drawings and rock carvings are the world's oldest comic book. They take us on a magical journey through the millennia, from the time when there was a savannah in this area to the times just before our era. The drawing of the giraffes is one of the first in history to use perspective to depict three giraffes in the distance.
Few people know that there are no wild camels in the Sahara desert. They came to these areas about a thousand years before our era, together with the Arabs. To this day, a camel is an attractive capital investment and each of the animals encountered has its owner.
Janat - the starting point of our trip is a former oasis inhabited only by Tuareg. Almost the only mode of transport that locals find suitable for the Sahara is the Toyota Land Cruiser. Almost all the models of this car ever produced can be found on the streets.
Moul n'Aga - majestic dunes spread over a rocky valley. One of the most picturesque places during our trip. There will be time to walk in the valley and climb the dunes. We will spend the night under the largest of them.
Camp under the Moul n'Aga dune. If we're there just when the moon rises early, it'll be as bright as day. My favorite place to go camping.
Fancy rock formations carved into sandstone by wind, water and time.
Wadi Indaren - the view from the top of the valley, the Ihrir River and the shepherds' houses is breathtaking. We go downstairs in the evening to spend the night in the fabulous Ihrir oasis
