Birnin Konni

Birnin Konni Birnin Konni is an important market centre in the south of Niger. It is very close to the border with Nigeria. The town is located on the crossroads of the road that leads from Agadez to Sokoto and the one going from Zinder to Niamey The town does not have many actual sights but it is an easy going place and it's a good place to buy a few things that may be harder to find in the desert. Petrol is readily available in Birnin Konni. it is smuggled accross the border from Nigeria and prices here are among the lowest in Niger. ...


Arlit Arlit is a Saharan version of a boomtown: Uranium mines in the desert have given it a recently-thrown-together look and feel. Since Arlit is on the main road to Algeria, the town is quite a busy place (when the road is open at least, when it is closed you don't need to be here).

The highest peaks reach 2000 meters, Mt Bagzane some 150 km north of Agadez is just above that. Timia Timia is a small oasis in the middle of the Air Mountains, about a days drive to the East of Agadez. It features a rehabilitated French Foreign Legion fort on the hill top that can provide meals and ...


Agadez Agadez is the Nigerien sister of Timbuktu in Mali. Their histories are alike, their structures are alike, and the fascination they have on travelers is alike as well. If you approach overland you'll see it rise right out of the desert. The town has only 20.000 inhabitants who live in sand-brick houses that blend in with the countryside. Three tribes walk the streets: the Fulani (aka Fulbe, Peluh or Halpulaar) who wear large hats that look like the hats worn by the Chinese; the Hausa merchants dressed in long robes; and the nomadic Tuaregs who give chilling looks from beneath massive turbans. If you go to the outskirts of town to the goat and mutton market, you will catch a glimpse of the nomadic housing creatively...
