I thought a good route through the western GEOc would be to follow the flat areas south from Taghit, then turn east across some occasional cordons and then south along a line that leads to Timimoun.
I cant recall if I made this up looking at Google Earth, or if it was based on previous routes - I think the latter. I have not done this route.
Flying over the GEO into Adrar last Feb, parts of it did not look like places where driving a 4x4 would be much fun, although if you look at the picture I've posted to show this, there is actually a sanded-over exploration road winding through there.
Hiring self-drive cars locally, forget it. Flying and and sitting in the back as part of an all-inclusive tour, easily done.
