I'm planning to cross Algeria (Tunisia to Niger) via the Hoggar Route, was wondering if anyone else had similar plans for this October. I'm travelling in a 4x4 but would welcome fellow travellers on bikes, or any other vehicle (not looking for foot passengers).
At the very least, I would like to do a north-south traverse seeing the peaks of the Hoggar from Assekrem. If it's possible, I'm also keen to do a couple of side trips to the Tassili N'Ajer, and possible the meteor crater on the In Amenas piste.
I intend to leave Algeria at In-Guezzam for Niger. I would be happy to spend anything from about 10 days to 4 weeks in Algeria.
If anybody has similar plans and would appreciate splitting the costs of the guide, please either post a reply, or email me at:
we plan to travel through algeria, niger, nigeria and cameroon aprox. early november or late october. it would be nice to drive together and share a guide in algeria-niger. we will drive a landcruiser hj61. we were planning to use route du hoggar
We (1 person in a 4x4, 1 on a bike) plan to enter Algeria mid to late October this year (e.g. 20th). I'd be very keen to travel with you to share costs, but I believe there may be a problem as we all need to apply to the same embassy for our visas (i.e. London). Are you in Holland?
Please mail me if your still interested to see what we can do.
It would be nice to travel together, not only because we can save some money by sharing the guide, but also because it safer and it might be more fun!
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee yet that we will make oct 20th.. there are some dependencies with work, etc. We currently aim at the 1st week of november. With some luck late oct. would be possible, but we cannot tell yet.
What are your plans for Algeria and when you arrive in Niger? Are there certain things you want to see?
Also I am still curious about the number of other travellers we can expect to encounter.
We really wish to stick to late October, but we'd be very keen to join with you if possible.
We aim to spend ca 20 days in Algeria - taking in the scenery, travelling off piste, but we are not crossing any major ergs. We aim to see the Tassilli N'Ajjer NP, Assekrem, Tam, then cross in to Niger at I-n-Guezzam.
We are also thinking of doin a loop through the Tenere and Air Mountains in Niger, seeing Bilma, Dirkou, Djado etc.
My girlfriend and I are considering a 3 to 4 week trip to Algeria around that time. We returned in February from a 4 month trip Tunesia-Libya-Niger-Mali-Mauri-Morocco so you can see that Algeria is sort of the missing piece of the puzzle. On this trip we met up with two English car that were going to Algeria. Met them again later and they had been very satisfied with their Swiss guide. I can could get the contact details of this guide.
One problem for us is that it will be quite hard to get off from work to do this trip, so nothing is sure yet.
Hi Dan and Martin and ? others,
Are you still heading into/through Algeria along Hoggar route or have you already gone? We are planning same 2-up on one motorcycle mid-November this year (2006) crossing into Niger, entering from Tunisia and would be keen to share a guide. Must apply for visa soon.
