Do you know that Algeria is kind of dangerous for foreigners. Terrorists and banditgroups have foreigners as target for their goals. Has this changed? What is your opinion?

Yep, I gues travelling by yourself is not that smart. Like Libya, it probably isn't possible to get a visa without travelling in a group.

By the way Wouter, check sawadee.nl, they have an organized tour to souther Algeria, which looks kinda cool...but tiring as well...

By the way (maybe a stupid question), how can I delete my previous post?

One of my family members went to South Algeria. The landscape is really stunning and its not as dangerous as Algiers and the northern part (at least safe enough).

It appears that independent travel is theoretically possible in Libya, good luck without any arabic, but Algeria will only grant a group travel or journalistic visa for security reasons. Which is a shame, 'cause I'd love to visit Algeria.

Me too. I saw a movie about illegal immigrants coming north from Mali to Morocco. What I saw made me realise that such a trip while still difficult, is not impossible and not half as dangerous to do as I previously thought.

bluseter, I hope you hang around as information on Algeria for travellers is very hard to come by. We need you!
