Arguably the most adventurous event in all of North Africa is the Trans Sahara Run. During March when the suns heat is mellowed by the cool breeze, participants are gathered for a 6000km drive across the Sahara Desert to the Atlantic Ocean! Teams who take part in the competition have to rely on their driving navigation skills to get to the finish line and have to keep their spirits high in all adverse conditions of the desert!
Tough yet tantalizing to the outdoorsy tourist, the Sahara Run is a true taste of African hospitality, culture and life.
