Salt caravans in the enormous plain of the Tenere Desert
Salt caravans in the enormous plain of the Tenere Desert. A year of good rains to the south made unusually large numbers of camels healthy enough for the two month-long round trip to the oasis of Bilma, where local Tuareg traders buy salt to sell in Southern Niger and Northern Nigeria. The caravan in the foreground is on it?s way out of the desert, each camel loaded with 200kg of salt, while the one in the background is on it?s way to Fachi, with loads of fodder and foodstuffs for the return trip.
