Imaginary journey to the world of Tuaregs

Their house is a tent, their wardrobe is a branch, their kitchen is a camp-fire, their money is a goat, a sheep or a camel but they can call a huge areas – the Aïr Mountains and the Tenere desert – as their homeland in the South Sahara.

Members of the Kel Tedele Tuareg clan live nomadic life, the name means ‘outlying inhabitants’.  For strangers maybe seems the Touilmas walley is itself th Eden, where all creatures live together and use same language. Members of the Kel Tedele love gloomy range of the Aïr Mountains. They know exactly where there are water reserves hidden in the cliffs that could save their lives if they are too far away from the wells.
