Travel to Western Sahara
Why travel to Western Sahara, you ask? Because it’s AWESOME!
Western Sahara is full of sand and sun, waves and deserts, wildlife and fossils, fishing, and more. Western Sahara also boasts a rich cultural tapestry across coastal towns, Bedouin communities, and desert cities. And, because Western Sahara is the last colony remaining in Africa. Be a witness for peace and justice!
