An exploration of Libya

The fascinating and mysterious country of Libya is located in the north of Africa between desert and the Mediterranean. In recent years, Libya has drawn attention to itself through shocking news reports. In the last few months, the political situation in the desert state has noticeably stabilised. Although this naturally depends on the political situation on the planned date of departure, we hope to be able to operate this long-since impossible tour through this fantastic country in 2015. The planned route takes us to spectacular oases such as the Waw an Namus and the Mandara Lakes. As we drive through the breathtaking landscapes of the Sahara, you’ll be astounded at just how many different faces the desert can have.
