ALGERIA 4X4 OVERLAND EXPEDITION!

Algeria 4X4 Overland Expedition!


10-24 February 2025

From our arrival at the port of Oran / Ghazaouet, where we meet up with our Touareg guide, we embark on a 3-day 2,000km drive south to the desert town of Illizi, headquarters of our local guide's family, from where we subsequently head further south to Djanet, and from there we venture deep into the Sahara proper, the Tadrart on the Libyan border. The Tadrart region is world-renowned for its fascinating archaeological formations, and equally for its incredibly well-preserved prehistoric rock art, notably in the Tassili n'Ajjer, the national park on a sprawling plateau. Our return journey is via the Hoggar Mountains, back to In Salah, for a 2-day 1,000km drive north to our departure port. Participants must have travelled Morocco or Sahara with us previously.

Fully catered as always, featuring our unique delicious BBQ feasts.

Start - we meet at Alicante / Almeria for our overnight ferry crossing (cabins included) to Oran / Ghazaouet, where we join our local contact.

Finish - our return Algeria to Spain ferry crossing (cabins included) is in the early evening of Day 15, for disembarkation the following morning.

Included - full catering 3 meals per day for the duration of the tour, open return Spain-Algeria ferries, embassy liaison, agency documents, tourist visas, local Touareg guide with vehicle, all camping costs from start to finish, entry fees to national parks and sites of historic interest.

Highlights - Algeria has the most stunning desert scenery in the whole of the Sahara Desert. The views in the south of the country can only be described as spectacular. Bizarre rock formations are surrounded by golden red sand, and one's imagination stretches to new heights when confronted with this magnificent and unique landscape. The rock carvings in the Tassili n'Ajjer are amongst the oldest pre-historic art in the world, which can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicle, and we will venture deep into the Tadrart Gorge on our quest to see some of the most stunning examples. In the Hoggar Mountains we find some of the highest mountains in the Sahara, and high up at 9000 feet on the Assekrem summit, the monks celebrate mass every morning, in their tiny monastery. Father Foucauld's refuge nowadays welcomes travellers from all over the world, in this unreal alpine environment, and the little settlements of Ideles and Hirhafok on the way to the Assekrem, mainly see intrepid voyagers passing by, though we will take tea with the Touaregs after crossing from Djanet to the Hoggar.
