This article, I’m going to be talking about a lot of things that include some information about visiting the Sahara desert.
I am sure you are asking yourself when the best time would be to visit the Sahara. There are actually a lot of factors that you should take into consideration when you are deciding the time of year you should visit the Sahara desert. You should obviously start by thinking about the desert heat. The Sahara happens to be the hottest between the months of June and September. If you are not a fan of putting on sunscreen, you should avoid this particular season.
But, that doesn’t mean that you should completely restrict your time. It is possible for you to visit whenever you want. But, it is best for you to visit in the winter months, which would be from November to February. The daytime temperatures are actually mild, and after the sun sets, the temperatures usually plummet, and it is going to be freezing. Keep in mind that there are a lot of dust storms that are prevalent between the months of February to April. All of the above considered, the landscape is actually very pleasant from the months of March till May. You can also visit from September to October. It is very beautiful in these months.
When you are packing for a trip to the Sahara desert, you need to consider the essentials in your luggage. You need to consider all of the activities that you have planned out. See if your itinerary includes you going on a camel in the desert. Are you going to be camping under the stars? Or, you need to consider what kind of resort you’re going to be staying in.
Generally speaking, there are few things that are essential when you are considering luggage. You need very comfortable pants and also, you need protection for your legs when you are riding the camels. Bring a light jacket and also ask off so that you can wrap it around your face on your neck so that you don’t get sand in your face.
You should definitely not forget sunscreen. You need to bring your favourite comfortable sneakers and pack a pair of hiking boots. You will definitely need your camera, because it is absolutely spectacular. Make sure you have some extra batteries. You need a brush for your camera lens, because it is going to be very dusty. You do not want to scratch up your lens, do you?
I would also like to add that campaign under the stars will be one of the most beautiful things that you can do in the Sahara desert.
