Currently, following nearly a decade of much increased trafficking, banditry and terrorist activities, as well as nomadic rebellions and not least the recent outflow of weaponry and disenfranchised fighters from Libya, tourism in the central Sahara has collapsed or has become severely restricted. But it wasn't always like that. The 1980s were a Golden Age of independent desert exploration; post-colonial nations hadn't yet been beset by internal strife, while the glamour of the original Dakar Rally, as well as the advent of desert-capable motorcycles and 4x4s saw adventure travel flourish in the Sahara of Niger, Algeria and Mali. It’s unlikely those days will return. For once I found myself doing the right thing in the right place at the right time.
