Algeria Warnings and Dangers


    You are looking at illegal pictures for which I was detained for 30 minutes and almost jailed. It was stupid and my own fault. In fact I normally feel the right to take pictures, but this was wrong. Please don’t do what I did.The Police in Algeria are very protective and supportive of Tourists. Several times they stopped me to make sure I was ok,...

  • School warning road sign

    I have already written in other tips that I collected photos of school warning road signs. I took this one in 2005 in Annaba. I should have more in my old slides that I will add. On the occasion of our recent travel, I noticed that Algeria had a great variety of such road signs. It seems that they were all different (home and hand made ?) but...

  • Car breakdown might be fatal

    If you decide to cross the Sahara desert by car, make sure, that it is a good one, that you have plenty of water with you to survive in case of a breakdown and to take a good navigation system with you! It might be fatal otherwise!

  • Assekrem- Zone of scorpions

    In this zone we saw 3 scorpions, so it's recommendable to sleep inside a tent, the guides didn't because they are used to it, but it is a little impressive to anybody else except them. This "lovely" animals use to stay near the rocks and stones, don't put the tent near.There are also snakes and other animals, don't worrry very much, if you don't...

  • The rain

    It's not very probable that rain comes, but nothing is impossible. During my trip our guide told us that it was raining in the mountains and that it could be dangerous. I didn't understand what it meant until where there were only dry sand a front of water came, a huge quantity of liquid was pulling whatever it found and a river appeared. It can be...

  • Be carefull where you are!!!!!

    In the dessert is very, very easy to get lost. You can get confused very easily and it's very difficult to find somewhere or someone. That's why the travel assurances don't cover getting lost in the dessert or in the sea.If you decide to go to make a little excursion without a guide talk conviniently about where they are going to pick you up and...

    Although the number of terrorist incidents in Algeria has fallen considerably over the last two years, there are still unpredictable attacks at night, in rural villages and roadsides, and on public transport. Most recent terrorist activity has occurred in rural areas in northern Algeria.

    The south seems to be safe - no major incidents reported, but around Algier (which means a range of several hundred kilometres, after all, Algeria is a big country!) terrorist attacks still are possible.
