16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Adventure in the Great Expanse of Africa

The dunes seem to extend forever, but from this vantage in the Erg Chebbi, we see where the dunes taper out to flatness, to the low mountains on the horizon. Travelers, in caravan – 4x4s and separately, camels – traverse the dunes. Old way of travel, modern way of travel. Both, the tourist way of travel.
