    Agadez Things to Do

    Hotel Agreboun is the only budget option in town that hence attracts most backpackers, but besides the chance of meeting other travellers, it’s rather bad value.Most rooms only contain a bed, are not especially clean and the fans are rarely working at full speed. At night it gets exceptionally hot inside the mud brick rooms and it’s hard to choose...

  • The 450 km journey from Zinder to Agadez...

    Agadez Transportation

    The 450 km journey from Zinder to Agadez was not one to forget easily. Not that the road was too bad. On the contrary, it has improved a lot in recent years and is now tarred for 2/3 of the distance. But the car…Instead of planning a bit, I just went to the Agadez car park, waited there 24 hours and was lucky enough to have a front seat in an...

  • Visit the Tourist Office for its views

    Agadez Things to Do

    The on the main road signposted tourist office in the Old Quarter is a private initiative. Its best quality is the rooftop with superb views over Agadez.I went their to inform about independent travel in the region, but the friendly young man, educated and all but not well informed about the region, couldn’t give me any advice other than offering...

  • Beauty Contests

    Ingal Things to Do

    A very important part of the Festival are the beauty contests, consisting of several stages. While for the Tuaregs it are the women who adorn themselves and present them to the men, for the Fulani it are the men who dress up and compete for being the most beautiful. The climax of all comes on the last festival night, when the winners are announced....

  • The Mix of People

    Ingal Things to Do

    The Cure Salee Festival is attended by a mix of people in numbers that you unlikely will encounter anywhere else on earth! Just being there was to me the biggest attraction! Most of them are of Tuareg and Fulani tribes, all dressed up at their finest, carrying swords, and wearing exuberant clothes and make up; women carrying an enormous bunch of...

  • A Tuareg Music Performance

    Timia Favorites

    After dinner Ahmed suggested to invite some men for a traditional Tuareg music session. A great idea! Two days before, in the truck, I had heard some tapes of the Tuareg “war” songs and the tunes were still echoing in my head. A young guitar player arrived and after tea the private concert started. Busee sang and Conan made the rhythm using...

  • An Afternoon in Timia

    Timia Favorites

    Around 4.30 PM the caretaker returned to close the Fort again, but unfortunately he broke his key in the front door. What a pity…he had to renew the lock, that first had to be ordered from the Agadez truck on its next arrival. I decided the young man deserved a good tip…I just wandered around the gardens and the village until darkness. The end of...

  • Sometimes, Travellers need some luck…

    Timia Transportation

    Continued from "Must See"-TipsDuring the morning of my third day in Timia, again no vehicles passed by. Even the truck that was expected yesterday, hadn’t arrived yet. I had given up hope to be I time for the Cure Salee festival and spent another couple of extremely lazy and enjoyable silent hours at the cascade when suddenly, around 11am, Moussa...
