The Sahara Desert in North Africa is one of the most fascinating and attention-grabbing travel destinations on Earth if you’re a nature lover. The massive, sweeping sand dunes and curious animal and plant life (where it exists) provides people with a completely new notion of survival and beauty.

It can seem daunting to travel to the Sahara, but there are several options for travelers that want to discover this unique place. Here are three great options for discovering this natural treasure.

Camel Excursion

One option for getting to know the Sahara is to visit the area on the back of a camel. These beasts, native to the region and used by its natives for centuries as pack animals, can transport you around the region’s sand dunes and provide a truly unique experience.

4WD Tour

Another great way to see the Sahara is in a 4WD vehicle, which is able to drive on the sand. By zipping around the desert in one of these, you’re likely to cover more ground than you would on foot or on the back of an animal. Plus, the speed makes it a truly exhilarating experience.
