Adrar des Ifoghas

Mali
The Adrar des Ifoghas is a large plateau in the eastern Kidal region of Mali covering roughly 250 000 square kilometers. Adrar is the Tamasheq word for mountain while Ifoghas is the name of a Tuareg clan which lives in the region, the French so named it to differentiate from their (long-held) Adrar in Mauritania. The area is home to a surprising number of animals, including gazelles, antelopes, hyenas, jackals, snakes, & lizards. It contains some very scenic desert landscapes, including granite outcrops, eroded sandstone, gueltas, rock paintings, petrified wood, and even an ancient river valley.
