The Western Desert

This desert is the largest of all, it covers the enormous extension that goes from the Nile eastwards to the border with Chad westwards and from the border with Egypt northwards as far as Sahel that bounds the desert southwards. A 700 km by 700 km square of territory, something as big as France, practically uninhabited. The morphology of this territory is different from the other deserts in Sudan in the northern region: mainly level ground, with few sandy formations and no volcanic rocks. There are only the rest of ancient faults that formed hill range mainly located north-southwards. Here it is possible to meet nomads at the wells where the big camel herds come to drink. Also this area is inhabited by Bisharin nomads, but Kababish tribes often travel through with their camels on the way to Egypt.
