Even further west, in the mountains, not far from the Algerian border, springs spring and small oases offer their shade, Tamerza and its waterfalls, Midès and its canyons and finally the beautiful oasis of Chebika.

Our trip continues further south of these oases where the vegetation disappears and gives way to the Sahara.
As far as the eye can see, the dunes of the great Eastern Erg stretch, the sand is white towards Douz and becomes Ocher Safran towards Ksar Ghilane.

During your tour you can sleep in the Sahara either camp or camp.
The night under the starry sky of the desert is an unforgettable experience!

This region is really the ideal place for 4 × 4 tours as many places are not accessible for private cars.

This village is renowned for its remarkable troglodyte dwellings which make it one of the top places of Tunisian tourism. Scenes from the movie Star Wars were shot there.

Known as the "door of the Sahara". During Antiquity, it was the most important oasis in the region. Until recently, it was a stopping point for caravans during their travels between the Sahara and northern Tunisia.
In December the International Sahara Festival takes place there.

The Chott El Jerid.
Salt lake, nearly a hundred kilometers from East to West.
Chott El Jerid has no altitude below 15 meters, so it is above sea level, contrary to a widely held belief.

Located northwest of Chott El Jerid, it is one of the oases located at the gateway to the Sahara Desert.
Tozeur is a city with an important religious past and known for its scholars.
This city is also a great producer of dates, 35,000 tons, of which 4,000 are from organic farming and two-thirds of the production is the variety Deglet Nour (Finger of God).

The site was used for certain scenes of the film "The English Patient and Fort Saganne".

Ksar Ghilane.

This oasis serves as a refuge for fifty nomadic families living from the exploitation of date palm, goat and sheep farming.
