Day 1 : Sebha – Wadi Methkendoush – Ubari
Highlights: Wadi Methkendoush and the Landscape.
From Sebha airport we will Board our 4×4 Jeeps and drive to the first sight Wadi Methkendoush. Wadi Methkandoush lies along the southern side of the Msak Settafet. It has one of the richest concentrations of prehistoric rock carvings in the world. Most of the carvings in the soft sandstone date back at least 12,000 years, making this one of the oldest rock art sites in North Africa.
Day 2: Ubari – Germa – Ubari
Highlights: Germa and the Landscape.
After breakfast we drive to Germa. The Garamentes, legendary and mysterious population of the Libyan Sahara, founded the oasis–town of Germa. They controlled the desert caravan trade from Ghadames south to the Niger River, eastward to Egypt and west to Mauritania. Their wealth and technical skill are also attested to by the remains of their towns, which were built of stone and more than 50,000 of their pyramidal tombs. Afterwards we continue our way to the Wadi where one can admire here the splendid artworks on the rocks: rock ‘Graffiti’, which testify the presence of water and life in this region.
Day 3: Ubari – Sebha
Highlights: The lakes and the Landscape.
Full day dedicated to the visit of the lakes in the Awbari region. We will visit a few of the most famous: Ummelmaa, Gaberaoun and Mafo. The second one is located close to a small village of the same name and was originally called ‘Bahr Ed Doud’ (= Sea of Worms), because the black community living here before used the worms they found living in the lake as their principal source of food.
