Yahoo Map of Gaberoun Oasis - Sahara

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Gaberoun is an oasis with a large lake located in the municipality Sabha in the Libyan Sahara.

The old bedouin settlement by the western shore of the lake has been abandoned, and now lays in ruins. A rudimentary tourist camp is located on the northeastern shore, including an open tea patio, sleeping huts, and a souvenir shop (attended by a touareg in full costume) in the winter.

The lake is very salty, swimming can be pleasant despite of salt water crustaceans. Mosquitoes are abundant, especially in the summer. Best time to visit is from October to May, when the temperature is bearable.
