Algeria: the amazing Sahara

What is it about?

“Six days deep into the heart of the Sahara, into one of the most picturesque parts of the desert: Tassili n’Ajjer National Park of Algeria, near the borders with Libya and Niger.

I never thought I could be so overwhelmed by the beauty of the Sahara but for sure this was one of the most amazing trips I have ever had. I witnessed breathtaking Saharan landscapes changing endlessly before my eyes, and I hope that you too, watching the video, will get mesmerized by the amazing beauty of the desert – the tall dunes, the dramatic sandstone formations (pinnacles, buttes, arches), and the ancient rock art.

More than 15,000 petroglyphs and paintings, some up to 8,000 years old, have been discovered in the area. The Tuareg people who have lived in the Sahara for millennia are nowadays happy to guide travelers through its secrets. Tassili n’Ajjer is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that deserves to be seen and admired.”
