Morocco to Timbuktu: An Arabian Adventure

This adventure was not just about the physical journey of getting from Tangier to Timbuktu, it was about immersing myself in the life lived by traders five hundred years ago. I I explored the lost city of Sijilmassa, mined for gold in Mali and ate some very crunchy goat trachea.

The traders would cross from the heart of Africa up to Europe and back again with cargoes of gold, slaves, and salt. Like them, I rode on camel back through the Sahara, slept in medieval caravanserai, and crossed the Atlas Mountains made treacherous by snow.
