Dakhla is located in Western Sahara, which is a territory in North Africa to the south of Morocco. Dakhla, also known as Villa Cisneros, is a town with approximately 67,500 inhabitants.
Dakhla lies on the coast along the Atlantic Ocean. The climate in this region is typically desert-like very dry and hot. The cold current from the ocean and the dry air create foggy conditions.
This region is not very well explored and many roads have been closed off because of the danger of existence of landmines. Dakhla started off as a Spanish colony and was fortified by them about 100–150 years ago.
For many years, Western Sahara fought for its independence and self-governance against the Kingdom of Morocco. Eventually in 1991, most of the territory was placed under the governance of Morocco.
