The Democratic and Popular Republic of Algeria is located in Northwest Africa. Algeria is the largest country in Africa and is bordered by Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali, Niger and by the Mediterranean Sea. With more than four-fifths of its territory covered by the Sahara desert, coastline on the Mediterranean Sea and Atlas Mountains running through the country, Algeria is a fascinating country. Places to check out include the regions of Tassili N’Ajjer and Hoggar, both listed as UNESCO Heritage Sites, where local color is rife in the everyday lives of traditional Algerian tribes. There is also the Algiers, where the old school and the modern meet to showcase an interesting mix of Algeria’s colonial past and hopeful present. Timimoun provides tourists a slice of the Sahara desert while In Sajah is made interesting by the sand dunes that divide the region into two.
