From Algeria route Niger or Mali
I’m in the final stage of preparation for the same route Dec07/Jan08, Tunisia –Algeria – Niger or Mali – Nigeria. I’ve even bought air tickets for my wife and kid to meet us up in Nigeria.
So far information I’m getting online is neither boarder (Niger or Mali) is confirmed closed, Our initial plan was via Niger, online information has it that one would have to join a military convoy in the northern part of Niger but I’ve got no confirmation if they'll let foreigners join the convoy, our Algeria tour guide said that at the moment Mali is less dangerous, so we are going via Mali and entering Niger from the south. Our final destination is Nigeria.
