The capital and largest city in Niger, Niamey is a bustling hub for this West African country. The city is surprisingly quite modern and, of course, very diverse. With beautiful and vibrant open aired markets, great museums, and restaurants on the banks of the Niger River, the city is a cultural haven and the economic and administrative center of the country. 

Tahoua is a vital trading area for many locals in the north and south of the country. The town is otherworldly in the sense that the buildings and architecture are very traditional. When you are in Tahoua you have a feeling of stepping back in time, although, there are many spots throughout the country that seem as though time has stood still the last 50 years. 

Over the course of the tour, we will travel overland from Niamey to Agadez staying in and exploring Tahoua along the way. Once we arrive in Agadez, we will spend two days exploring this market town and popular spots within it. The city is well-known for its camel market and leatherwork. We will have a chance to experience prayer at the famous grande mosque and also interact with Agadez locals.

From Agadez, we will turn around and make our way back to Niamey the same way we came. The tour involves plenty of driving, however, this also means there is an abundance of photo opportunities and points of interest along the way.
