Swimming in the Sahara

South of Tamanrasset, Amsel is a nice excursion, and a great hideout during summer heat. Near Amsel, there is a reservoir, where nobody will object to your swimming. The water is clear and clean, and nicely temperated. Amsel itself is very much a standard village, but OK to take a walk around in, as long as keep fresh in mind that you're out into the Sahara desert.

Eat and Sleep
Nothing of hotels and restaurants, go back to Tamanrasset.

One bus per week passes en route for the destination Tamanrasset- In Guezzam.
