One of the highlights of Libya is the amazing Sahara desert. From the rolling dunes to the authentic oasis, Libya’s desert is a must see for travelers. At this point in time, we have been advised to steer our clients away from the desert areas until the security is fully restored in Libya. Most of our Libya Tours offer desert options, however, we do have some excellent tours that focus on the northern coast of Libya.
When will the desert be open?
My local partner here in Libya is from the south…so he has great insights into this region. He says that the southern areas of the desert should be ready for visits in the next few months but he said he would let me know.
Different Desert Options
Libya offers many different types of desert experience, but 2 stand out to me. The first is the authentic, rustic camping. Bring your own sleeping bag and experience camping in the desert. We provide the tents, food, and other gear…but you need your bag. This is for those looking to save a little money and not be bound by permanent camp locations. The second experience is for those looking for a little more comfort. Enjoy a semi-luxury camp with toilets and beds. These are not like the camps of Kenya but they will get you off the ground and allow you to experience Libya’s desert in more comfort.
Developing the Desert
Over the next few years, Libya will develop their desert travel options and visitors will soon experience higher quality travel in the Libyan desert. Now is the time to start planning your next vacations — so you might as well think about Libya.
