which would be easier to live in, sahara or Sahel?
There are way more oasis in the Sahara. Oasis give water to local towns, also date palms grow in oasis which give fruit, and shade. Another reason is, the Sahara is cooler than the Sahel. This makes it harder to farm, find water, find food, in the Sahel. The Sahara and Sahel are not ideal 5 star hotels but if it came down to it I would rather live in the Sahara, because too many things point to the Sahara for a better life.
