Travel with Children

Travelling in northern Algeria with children of any age is generally fairly simple. Main roads are in good condition and journey times between destinations not overly long; supermarkets in bigger towns are well stocked with nappies (diapers), baby food and other items; many restaurants are happy to accommodate children (though don't expect high-chairs or kids' menus); and many hotels have family rooms and self-catering apartments are often available in Algerian beach resorts. Bigger towns normally have a play park or two.

Travelling in the south with children is a different matter. Distances are very long and it can be very hot. However, older children will likely enjoy the desert and some of the tour companies offer 'family-friendly' desert tours – think camels and sand boarding. Needless to say travelling in desert regions with children of any age in the summer is not a good idea.
