The best time to visit Algeria for a Saharan safari is March-April or Oct-Nov when the heat of the day is bearable and the nights are less cold than in the middle of winter. Both periods will also allow you to incorporate in your itinerary cities and sites of the Mediterranean coastline – then dry and relatively warm – while October sees the start of the annual date harvest. An added benefit of travelling to Algeria during spring or autumn is far fewer crowds around key cultural attractions and beach resorts.
