One of the deepest human experiences that one can live in Sahelian Africa: in the Chadian bush after the rainy season, the Gerewoll of the nomadic shepherds Wodaabe. Last authentic celebration of this mysterious people. Thanks for the pictures to the videographer Yuri Palma (@palmayuri) who accompanied us on last September.
Our "Rallies and the Wodaabe feasts" circuit ended with a memorable "Gerewoll" dance (lasted more than 12 hours) during which many girls chose their favorite. Then the clans (Sudo Sukai, Japtos and Luchis) moved towards the southern pastures, but our relationship and friendship continues even during the advance of the dry season.
Abayke: the Tassili, sandstone formations shaped by atmospheric agents, are one of the most spectacular Saharan geological morphologies. In the Ennedi there is an impressive concentration.
Ennedi, the Guelta de Maya, an unexpected water hole in an entirely mineral universe, is one of the jewels of biodiversity of which the Ennedi Massif is rich, an Eden in the middle of the Sahara
In the middle of the Chadian sahel, the indescribable pathos of one of the last spontaneous and traditional festivals of the African sahel: the Gerewoll Wodaabe
