Transport Through The Sahara Desert In Africa.
Truck drivers are very important in the sub-sahara, they are the lifeline of the countries. Trucks often travel with high speed, they have no mercy with their cars, and so you can meet trucks along the tracks with broken somethings – flat tyres or, believe it or not, without a battery to restart it. Sometimes we really wondered how to dare to cross the desert without a proper vehicle. On the other hand these guys can really improvise and we learned how to fix things with nothing.
Transport in the desert is very limited and if a truck sets out for one of this dangerous journeys, a lot of people see the opportunity to get a ride on those vehicles. Distances between places (where you can get water, petrol or any help in general) can be days apart.
