**Good News! This year 2017 in August the Committee in Ingal / Agadez has decided to separate the Cure Salee and the Gerewol. The Cure Salee takes place on the 15th-16th and is a separate event. This package is for the Gerewol, the more famous and photogenic of the 2.
***This is the price we can offer now for even just one person! NTT carries a low price guarantee, and match/beat any other operator for this event. NTT has developed long term good relationships with the communities in the Sahel/Sahara there.
****Kindly be informed that because of this price-busting effort, we do not give any further discounts. We are endeavoring to make the trip and the festival accessible to everyone. Come on over! Bloggers and photographers, journalists and anthropologists welcome. Everybody enjoys the same low price!
