From Algeria to Niger
Hi. Three of us are planning to ride our motorbikes across to Agadez, tour the Air mountains and head back.
Does anyone have current news on crossing from Tamanrasset to Niger? Was the "road" ruined by the rains? Is there fuel to be had? Bandits? Ditto for the Air mountains. Do we need carnets for the bikes? (guide books and RAC say "yes", but I hear rumours of "no")
And .... malaria. What's the truth behind a comment I read of malaria in Agadez? I was surprised cos I didn't think there was enough water to support breeding.
Thanks for your tips.
