    Which African slave trade? There were two major slave trades in Africa. The oldest and largest was the Arab and Trans Sahara slave trade where African slaves were traded to the Middle East and India. The other was the Trans Atlantic slave trade sending slaves to the New World. There also was the North African slave trade that involved the Barbary States raiding southern Europe for slaves. The main characteristics of all three were that in both the Arab slave trade and the Trans Atlantic trade the majority of the slaves were POWs sold by the victors.
