"While there have been no proven referee slayings since [1357], there have been several incidences of broom-tampering over the centuries, the most dangerous being the transformation of the referee's broom into a Portkey, so that he or she is whisked away from the match halfway through and turns up months later in the Sahara Desert."

The Sahara Desert is the world's largest hot desert, covering most of Northern Africa.

History

An unidentified Quidditch referee once found himself transported there, as his broomstick was transformed into a Portkey halfway through a Quidditch match.[1] It appears that this is a semi-common occurrence with Quidditch referees.[1]

Gilderoy Lockhart apparently once travelled to the Sahara Desert and took at least one photo there.[2]
