A remote and secluded oasis, Guelta d’Archei was created by underground water emerging to the surface hundreds of years ago. The oasis sustains the area's plant and animal life and serves as the natural habitat for one of the last Nile crocodile colonies in the desert. To reach this out-of-the-way spot, you'll need a car and a local guide. Before you visit Fada, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
