We came to Ghat after a 4 days desert crossings from Ghadames along the Algerian border. From Ghat we headed south to visit the spectacular Acacus area. From the Acacus we another route to El Uwainat
We made the trip with three 4WDs and one pick-up of a touragency, based in Ghadames. The four local drivers were very experienced to find their way in the desert and to drive their cars under difficult circumstances. We had hardly any mechanical problems en route except with one car. We had to push this car every time after we made a stop, so the nigth before the driver drove it at a slope if availiable.
We brought enough fuel and water. The drivers used the pickup for the water tanks, but also to transport the fire wood they pick up along the pistes.
