Sahara expedition

In the 19th century, the first Europeans set out across the Sahara on legendary expeditions. This adventurous XWORLD stage follows in the footsteps of great explorers such as Rohlfs, Barth and Nachtigal, heading along former caravan routes through the middle of the Sahara. Even today, large parts of this desert are visited by very few tourists. Providing the political situation is stable, this trip will be a true adventure for all the explorers among us.
