Algeria Nov/Dec 2004 Guide Cost Share

A girl friend and I intend to drive through, Algeria, Niger and finally down to Lagos, Nigeria (Tamanrasset – In-Guezzam – Arlit –Agadez – Lagos) accessing Algeria via Tunisia. We are looking for people to share the Guide cost across Algeria. Intended date of arriving the Tunisia - Algerian border (Nefta / El-Oued) is 26th Nov. (The date is flexible by plus a week but not earlier.)

Please Note: I’ll be using a 2-wheel drive car (Peugeot 505), as I hear not all 4x4 drivers are keen on have a 2-wheel drive in their convey, but I doubt this should be much of a problem since at the moment off piste (asphalt road) is officially forbidden.

Finally, just in case I’m unable to make any contacts before leaving, those anyone know if it is advisable to take the risk of hoping to meet other people at the Tunisian side of the Algeria/Tunisia border or on the ferry to share the guide cost.

Try and set up a guide share in advance - hoping to meet others with no guides and wanting to share your dates, route and guide (or vice versa) would be a big gamble.

Tunde , I've tried ( in March 2004 ) to do the same thing .... And I found nobody ( only on or 2 responses and not for the same dates ) .
Another point : Beetween Tam and Arlit ,it is a track ( there is only 80 km of "road" ) but , of course , it is doable with a 505 .
Nice trip !
RR .

Chris and roro thanks for your responses,
