Visit Western Sahara
Western Sahara is one of those unique destinations that is in a state of flux. It is partially controlled by Morocco and the SADR, officially making it a disputed territory and is listed as a non-self-governing territory. It is one off the most sparsely populated regions in the world, with nearly have the population living in Laayoune.
Much of the coastal region is administered by Morocco, who considers Western Sahara as part of its territory. Travel conditions and expectations are similar to what they would be for a stay in Morocco. The only difference is that independent travel is often restricted and some areas may be off-limits. There are certain areas that are heavily mined and guarded.
The lands of Western Sahara are so sparsely populated because they are some of the most arid and inhospitable in the world today. Even the ragged coastline is rather inhospitable, though there are some excellent fishing opportunities that can be found in certain regions. There are no permanent streams in this territory, which means the most precipitation tends to come from heavy dew or fog.
Cultural opportunities are few and far between, but the Museum of the Sahrawi People’s Liberation Army is a notable example. The museum offers numerous military artifacts, including vehicles, towed artillery, small arms, and explosives. One of the more unique items on display is a 105mm M101 Howitzer.
Western Sahara is a land of rugged adventure, giving it a beauty all its own. With its governance disputed and much of the area difficult to reach, many find themselves staying in Laayoune should they come here.
