Program

A circuit that starts from the oasis of Djanet, called the "Pearl", at no great distance from the Libyan border and winds dall'Hoggar the Tassili; in a nearby dimension to that dream through a Sahara that is continually changing. The magic of silence and color is the aestheticism of the nature of breathtakingly beautiful mountains, rocky and flat expanses with green and pink tufts of flowering oleander, natural pools in the middle of nowhere, the Erg and its dunes, the "relentless sea of ​​sand and wind", plurimillenial cypresses decent stand like gigantic works of art, living fossils of lost forests, totemic monuments to the power of life and the species is preserved; then the graffiti in the caves of the mountains and thousands of prehistoric images to witness an inhabited garden!

The "written stones" tell of the great transformations that occurred in more than 7000 years of history, graphite, and painted in ravines protected in this extraordinary Paleozoic sandstone platform between sensational creations in a lunar landscape of spiers and pinnacles, cliffs, canyons, and crevices.

The Tassili of Ajjer is for sure one of the most interesting art sites in the world, a kind of open-air library is not exactly easy to reach. Guided by the Tuareg, the blue men who are very romantic, Berber people constantly moving, caravan nomads from south to north, have created intense commercial traffic.

Day 1

You will be welcomed at the Djanet airport by the Buggy & Bike team and Tuareg guides; transfer to the hotel accommodation and have a briefing.

Day 2

After breakfast, immediately enter the magical Sahara towards Tin Reseu where you can admire the famous painting representing the lion hunt. Tadrart is undoubtedly one of the most magical places in all of the Sahara. Enter a labyrinth of fabulous orange-yellow dunes and rocks carved and eroded by the wind with easily identifiable shapes. In addition, rock paintings and engravings make this region one of the largest rock art museums on the planet. Arrive in Sitka and accommodation will be at the camp.

Day 3

Today, the direction of the labyrinths of orange dunes and the fairy chimneys is to Moul en Nagha. You are here in an authentic dreamlike landscape. A lunar, foreign, unthinkable landscape; rocky cathedrals alternating with a sea of sand. In this wonder of nature, set up camp for the night.

The surrounding mountains eroded and shaped by the winds free the imagination and sensitivity to the sight of the most curious and surprising forms. Camp and bivouac near Wadi Injarren, at the exit of the park.

Day 6

After breakfast, resume the expedition which today brings you to admire the absolute masterpiece of this open-air museum which is the Tassili'n Ajjer: the crying cow. The artist has thus told and stylized forever, in the rock, the dramatic scene of poor cows who went to drink at the edge of a puddle, they find it completely dry. This work can be seen as a symbol of the desertification process that started in this region thousands of years ago; spend the night in a camp accommodation.

Day 7

Continue to Tikabaouine where you find yourselves in front of an expanse of sandstone columns between which flow corridors of fine sand. Arrive at the Erg of Admer, a sea of dunes on the horizon.
