      Does anyone have suggestions for a local Niger company or reliable driver that do reliable budget level trips within the country. We're adventurous, flexible and experienced travelers (recently to Cameroon, Sudan, Mali) and have up to 3 weeks in December 2014-January 2015.
      Thanks for any suggestions.

      Who made the new Tenere Tree ???

      Departement d' Agadez Jun 21, 2005 at 4:13 PM

      Here is what I am looking for :

      In 1973, the famous Tenere Tree ( an acacia ), in The Niger part of the Tenere desert ( the desert in the Sahara desert ), was hit to death by a lybien truck. For centuries, this tree was a living milestone for the camels caravan; it was the only tree at 400 km around.

      In order to replace it, in 1974, somebody or a group of people or an organization, built and installed a new Tenere Tree made of metal, holding long distance spotlights powered by a wind mill coupled to a dynamo. Here are a photo of the original tree and a photo of the new tree .

      Do you know who they are ? If not, do you know who could know ?

      Later on, in 1998, a famous Japanese Artist, Katsuyuki Shinohara made a monument called "Tree of Wind" on the new Tenere Tree site. Ihis sculpture should not be confused with the "new Tenere Tree".
      Photo of the monument exist at

      Please help me !!!

      Regards !
