Trip reports

A wildlife survey of the Ahaggar Mountains was carried out in March 2005. The survey concentrated on mammal sightings but bird observations are documented also. There is useful information regarding the logisitcs of travel in Algeria. This extensive report (6mb) can be downloaded here *.


There are no birding guides known in Algeria.

It is worth consulting your national foreign office websites such as US Travel and UK FCO for the latest safety and travel information before travelling. It is vital that you do not under-estimate the danger of being in the sun too long and it is worth using a sun-block and wearing a hat. You should also drink plenty of water, certainly a few litres a day. Algeria is not a malaria zone nor are tropical diseases a major concern.
