Hi, planning to travel to Algeria mid December '08- Flying in to Tamanrasset and Djanet- need hotel/guide/transportation-I am on Budget. Anybody knows any travel agencies I can contact prior to my travel via e-mail? Is it safe to use public bus transportation from Tamanrasset to Ghardaia? Pls provide me as much info , as much you can, I appreciate. How is the weather there, is it secure etc. What to see? I will stay 2-3 days in each city. I am looking forward to any info. Txs.

There are hotels in both tamanrasset or djanet but it it is not the only choise . tourists generally prefer houses or flats to be in within the local community (hotels charges from 1000 to 2000) to if you want to go from tamanrasset to djanet there are some 4x4 taxis crossing the desert via the pist. There you can see the beauty of the desert.
However if you travel by the bus you make 3 days from tamanrasset to gardaia, then gardaia ouargla , then an other 1400km from ouargla to djanet . so either you fly from tamanrasset to djanet or you pick a taxi from tamanrasset to djanet(and this last will cost you 3000 das). I can provide you with some pictures if you wish. About security don’t worry it is secure you will see many tourists In both towns with their families.
You can contact tiwaytateren agency for any information:
