I'm positive that the holes in our theory of evolution can be filled im exploring these regions.

I agree with the above, there is probably evidence lost beneath the sands of the Sahara of an ancient civilisation or two. The Egyptians reference Nubian civilisations to the south. And I'm... reasonably confident there was something in the Saharan region that has been lost.

One has to wonder how many civilizations have left no traces of their existance at all to be found. Some materials rot over time... the ones that do not are often picked up and used. People didn't always have a sense of preserving history. Wood will rot, stones get picked up for the construction of new buildings.
When it comes to old civilizations, there's only so far you can travel back. At some point there will be no records left. For example a lot of ancient greek and egyptian history has been lost due to sacking during wars, or using of the stones from major monuments for new buildings. Imagine a civilization two times or three times as old as the egyptians.
