The Ennedi Plateau is located in the central Sahara and is one of the most stunning portions of desert anywhere in the world. It is world famous for arches and sandstone formations unique to the region. The Ennedi is a sandstone massif, situated in northeast Chad near the border of Libya and Sudan. It has sometimes been referred to as the “secret garden” of the Sahara because of an abundance of flora and fauna on the Plateau, including remnant biological populations (like Nile crocodiles) from thousands of years ago, when the Sahara was wetter. The Ennedi is also home to a rich array of world-class rock art, stretching from the archaic up through historic Camel Period motifs.

Jeff LaFave has been involved with photographing and documenting rock art for 25 years. He has authored several publications and given numerous presentations on rock art related subjects. Jeff has traveled to visit rock art on all 6 continents which have rock art. He has also been involved with rock art recording and site monitoring and documentation projects, including helping with projects for the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, Archeoimagery, CASSP, and other private groups.
