Why Azjar Tour ?

In the Tuareg language, “AZJAR” or “AJJER” means “crossing.” The Djanet region, located between the Ferzan and Hoggar is named AZJAR because before the development of modern means of transportation, the Tuaregs used to move in caravans from Gadames in Lybia to Agadez in Niger, or to Timbuktu in Mali and back, by crossing the Algerian South. Perpetuating the tradition, the Azjar Tour team will therefore make you cross not only one of the world’s most surprising regions, but also a time of dreams and adventure .
