Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Djanet

Certainly makes an instant impression if you are flying in from lands where dealing with daily hustle of life seems to be life's main focus. The small oasis of Djanet, deep in the desert of Sahara, is the most unlikely place for an international airport. Nestled under the Tassili plateau, with its irrigated gardens and date palms, it is an ideal place to wind down before setting out on your journey of discovery. Despite the lively market, Djanet retains its calm ambiance and peaceful atmosphere.

Day 2 to 6: Aharedj/Essendillene

We start our camel ride tour, passing wells, in a beautiful region of hills and mountains. In the course of the trek we will visit some Touareg camps, who still maintain their traditional way of life. In this region we will see the classic Tassilian landscape spreading out before us. We will journey around 6-12 km per day with the days spent visiting natural springs and seeking out the rock painting. At night we will gaze at the stars from amongst the dunes. The region is crossed by massive gorges carved out by rivers which have long since dried out or gone underground.

The black-down surface of the weather-beaten sandstone gives it a scorched appearance. The area has one of the most important groupings of prehistoric cave art in the world. More than 15.000 drawings and engravings record the climatic changes, the animal migrations and evolution of human life on the edge of the Sahara from 6000 B.C. to the first centuries of the present era. The environment is of outstanding scenic interest, with eroded sandstones forming forests of rock. the area forms an extraordinary open-air museum which has been miraculously conserved, owing to the pure quality of the air.

Day 7: Return to Djaren and transfer to airport.
