    Get there by car

    Arriving in the Mzab valley

    The best to get to Ghardaia is by car, hired, or own car.
    Drive from Algiers across the Atlas and the High Plateau, and after Biskra you begin to drive in the true Desert. When arriving at Ghardaia, you feel the stunning difference between a rock-desert and a green lush oasis. From far, the oasis look like a paradise after the desert hell.

    Another transport mean

    the poor onkeys can carry everything, even tourist, and their weight is not . . . virtual!

    The donkey is still there. This is an important transportation mean like in most North Africa. I would like to have such an animal not eating up the juicy vegetables I load on his back!

    The Mobylette

    It is not a tourist transportation mean, it is a transportation mean in general !

    The Mobylette, a small motorbike is a very popular transport mean in the M’zab (and rural Algeria in general), for goods and persons. Some have even modified saddles (here, a blue blanket, like a saddle on a camel!), and replace the horse carriages which are disappearing.
