Except for the coastal areas, where the cities of Algiers and Oron are located, the rest of the country experiences a hot desert climate. The best time to visit Algiers and Oron (popular for beaches and architecture) is from October to March. If your plan is to go on a desert safari tour in the Sahara, only plan during the milder periods, i.e. March to April and October to November. Make sure that you book early (at least 3 months in advance) as prices skyrocket once the peak-season starts.
Houari Boumediene Airport:
Commonly dubbed as Algiers International Airport, this airport facility serves the capital of Algeria, Algiers, from which it is not so far off. The airport is only 16 kilometres away from centre city Algiers. Its IATA code is ALG. Arriving passengers from the UK will be using the international terminal, Terminal 1, of the airport.
Rabah Bitat Airport:
The Rabah Bitat Airport, having the IATA code AAE, is the major international airport serving the Annaba region. It is conveniently located at a distance of 9 kilometres from central Annaba. The airport has a new terminal (operational since 2016) in addition to the old one.
Jardin d'Essai du Hamma:
The scenic setting of this botanical garden, extending over 58 hectares, gives a royal impression of the place. Recognised as one of the most beautiful sites in Algiers for picnics and get-togethers, what we have here is an incredible, frequently instagrammed location ready for tourists and natives alike. A venue for many family-friendly events and general festivals, the garden also serves as a place of interest for botanists owing to the variety of floral species that it preserves. An art museum, a zoo, and several fountains are the chief attractions.
The Martyr's Memorial is not far from the Garden of Hamma and forms a major segment of any day trip in Algiers. A solid landmark recognising the Algerian war for freedom, the iconic monument is dedicated to the martyrs of the great cause. The depiction is that of three palm leaves shielding the eternal flame underneath.
Tikjda and Djurdjura National Park:
A ski lodge situated in the Djurdjura Mountains offers activities like skiing, hiking, and rock climbing. Most adventure seekers on a desert safari trip in the Sahara also plan a side trip to these mountains. The Djurdjura National Park widens the scope of your journey as you stop at different viewpoints on your way up the hills.
Beaches In Algeria:
The cities of Oran and Algiers are famous for their beaches and a Mediterranean climate. The Turquoise Coast, near Algiers, is the best holiday solution for any busybody. The Emerald Coast, also near the capital, is yet another terrific beachfront option for sunbathing, swimming, surfing, and kite flying. The other city known for its beachside is Oran. On the west of Oran, Les Andalouses and Plage El Onsor are two of the trendiest sandy beaches. For seaside tourism and an outdoor barbecue, Madagh Beach is also quite popular.
Tassili N'Ajjer National Park:
It is just not the same to visit Algeria and have fun without going on a desert safari tour in the Sahara. What is more, this national park also happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park gained worldwide approval and acclaim once the international focus was brought to some of the ancient caves that the park has and the cave art found therein. Do not let the temperatures scare you. You will be accompanied by local ground operators who will conduct the safari expedition as you navigate your way through sand dunes and rocky terrains.
