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 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).

On the other hand, the banks do not always have money, the bars do not always have beer. The hustlers who buy and sell are always there and you will not have trouble spotting them. When you arrive you have to go to the police and leave them your passport. You can get it back when you are ready to leave. ...

North of the Air mountains start the Tenere desert, and further northeast you can find the Djado Plateau. The mountain massif covers an area about the size of Switzerland. One of the more surprising aspects of the Mountains is that there is some really interesting flora and fauna, not just camels. 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 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...
