Sahara Overland is the first new guidebook to fully cover off-road travel in the Sahara for nearly 20 years. Information includes: where and when to go; documentation and route options; selecting, preparing and equipping the most suitable 4WDs, trucks and motorcycles - and even bicycles! Maintaining and repairing these vehicles in the field; desert driving and riding techniques are also covered. There are chapters on health, survival and navigation including the critical use of GPS; hiring of guides, climate, landforms, pre-historic art sites, peoples and languages. Sahara Overland also details, kilometre by kilometre, 30 off-road itineraries with hundreds of GPS waypoints in Mauritania, Morocco, Mali, Libya, Tunisia as well as outlining desert routes in less accessible or dangerous areas like the Western Desert of Egypt, Algeria, Niger and northern Chad. This book will also be the first to address undertaking organised tours in the Sahara: choosing a reliable operator, where is the best place for cameling in the dunes, trekking in the mountains, experiencing nomadic lifestyles, organising your own a la carte itineraries, what it costs and what to ask for. Visit the www.sahara-overland.com website from June 1999 for regularly updated Sahara travel information and further details of the book.
