During your time in glorious Tunisia, make sure you stop by at the desert for an out of this world experience. Here are a few options you can add to your itinerary.
The Grand Erg
Tunisia is home to almost 40,000 square kilometres of a sand desert which is part of the Grand Erg Oriental. With grand panoramic views of the stunning sand dunes, this is a rare glimpse into the stunning desert. The highlights here include the variety of sites, camel rides and great opportunities for walks!
Canyons and Oases
You’ll find a huge oasis in Tozeur that is home to hundreds of palm trees, which is just a few hours away from Europe, but feels like it’s worlds apart. Take a break from your stay at Anantara Tozeur Resort or any of the other Tunisia hotels you’re based at to marvel at this natural wonder. A few kilometres away from Tozeur are Chebika, Tamerza, and Mides – mountains that are found in southern Tunisia.
In the heart of a dry and mountainous landscape, you’ll come across the stunning architecture of Ksour. These buildings look like huge rock-colored beehives and were once the meeting points for semi-nomadic people who saved their harvests there. The reason for hiding is so that it’ll be safe from looters.
