The Tuareg people inhabit a large area, covering almost all of the Middle and Western Sahara and the north-central Sahel. They probably came from the ancient Libyan people of the Garamantine kingdom, described by Herodotus. The Tuaregs are mostly nomads. For more than two millennia, the Tuaregs exploited the trans-Saharan caravan trade connecting the major cities on the southern edge of the Sahara by five desert trade routes to the northern coast of Africa (Mediterranean).
