This trip takes you to some remote places that can only be reached on foot, or by camel. We start with a visit to Leptis Magna then fly to the desert airstrip of Ghat. Our trek starts from the Al Fawr (hot springs). You will walk accompanied by camels who will carry all the equipment and if you are tired can give you a ride as well. Our route will take us up an impressive mountain trail from the desert plains near Ghat onto the remote expanses of the Acacus Plateau then down to the complex of intersecting wadis of the eastern Tadrart. Here, in shelters under overhanging rock walls, people have lived for over 8000 years leaving a unique record of their lives and the changing environment through the medium of cave engravings and paintings.

Evenings will be spent by open fires and nights sleeping in tents or under the starry sky. All food will be provided by a cook.
