Algerien August 2002
in the Hoggar mountain range
the landscape is characterised by dunes and rocks
there is life in the desert after all!
The “grave route” – a challenge to man and technical equipment alike.
on the “grave route”
picture book camping sites
one of nature’s wonders
good for exercice
On the route to Djanet: and repeatedly sandy plains and the great experience of crossing the Erg.
Sooner or later, everybody gets stuck – but in summer, with temperatures of 50 degrees C, it becomes almost unbearable
Not travelling on your own, is an advantage in such situations. Digging out a truck with travelling companions is much quicker.
The ACTION MOBIL always guarantees for a shady spot in the midday heat.
Camels content themselves with the scanty shade offered by the thin branches of the acacia tree.
Tracks in the evening light often lead to a romantic camping site…
Whereas tracks in daylight constitute a promise for many adventures.
Adventures and events of this sort are generally unforeseeable in the morning. They are the consequence of driving over hot sand, sharp stones and also thors of the acacia trees.
a walk-in wardrobe is nothing unusual in a nomad’s home
Some litres of fresh drinking water from the ACTION MOBIL fresh water tank – a delicacy for nomads.
Little heaps of stones serve as a traveller’s guide through the desert. Caravans and nomads have been using them for generations to find their route through the desert.
