Next Episode of Morocco to Timbuktu: An Arabian Adventure is
Arabist, writer, explorer and Marrakech resident Alice Morrison follows the Salt Roads - once one of the world's richest trading networks to the fabled sandstone city of Timbuktu.Travelling by any means possible - camel, donkey and sometimes just on foot - it's a journey that takes her deep into the history, culture and civilisation of both ancient and modern North Africa. Alice's adventure reveals the extraordinary history, anthropology and landscapes of some of the most mysterious, beautiful and ancient cities in the world.
In this first episode Alice sets off from Tangier, Europe's gateway to Africa, and learns how gold was in high demand in North Africa, to be minted into coins and adorn palaces. Its source was the gold mines of sub-Saharan Africa and so the routes across the desert were forged.
In the second and final episode of this Arabian adventure, explorer Alice Morrison is in the vast Sahara, three and a half million square miles of desert, on an epic camel trek over the dunes on her journey to Timbuktu.
