During the show, you will have caught glimpses of the enormous sand dunes and classic Saharan landscape of southern Libya, as well as the surreal Dawada desert lakes. You have the chance to experience these for yourself on our Libyan Sahara

Closely following Foreign Office advice and working closely with local contacts to monitor the situation on the ground, we are hoping to offer a Short city break to Algiers and nearby historical sites of Tipaza and Cherchell and a Sahara Desert crossing, covering Tassili Plateau and Hoggar Mountains.
We will give you more news of this when it becomes available.
