Border town

Even being set 10 km from the border to Niger, In Guezzam is very much a border town, housing the military, and officials. In Guezzam would not have much to support itself, if it wasn't for the lorry trucks. What this place is, is a couple of dull one storey houses, housing only the most basic functions. Except from nearby sand dunes, there is nothing to see around here.

Eat and Sleep
One basic restaurant that lets travellers stay overnight.

Communications are problematic down here, one air flight a week for Tamanrasset. Buses leave just a couple of times a week.
