Libya is a classic North African destination and its primary appeal derives from its position as an ancient crossroads of civilisations. These civilisations bequeathed to the Libyan coast some of the finest Roman and Greek ruins in existence, among them Leptis Magna, Cyrene and Sabratha. This is also one of the best places in Africa to experience the Sahara Desert, from seas of sand the size of Switzerland and sheltering palm-fringed lakes, the Ubari Sand Sea, to remote massifs adorned with prehistoric rock art, labyrinthine caravan towns and an isolated volcano, the Wawa al-Namus, in the desert’s heart.
