Gilf Kebir – The Land of the English Patient
17th January 2017
All these seemingly desolate places have their curiosities, none more so than south-west Egypt’s little-known Gilf Kebir, where relics from distant geological epochs lie scattered alongside prehistoric rock art and the detritus of recent wars.
Since 1982 Chris has undertaken forty expeditions through the Sahara, from Egypt to the Atlantic by motorcycle, 4WD, M.A.N truck, Mercedes saloon car, bush taxi and with camel caravans.
All this has enabled him to gain an unparalleled knowledge of the practicalities of desert travel across the entire Sahara, both as a tourist, a driver, rider, trekker and as a tour leader.
