Overview

A Night in the Tent Excursion from Djerba: Beyond the Ordinary

A night in the Tent excursion from Djerba is not merely an outing; it’s an adventure and a journey through time. You’ll leave behind the well-trodden tourist spots to venture into the heart of the desert, embracing the spirit of the caravans and immersing yourself in local life.

Exploring Tataouine’s Hidden Treasures

During this extraordinary adventure, you’ll uncover the hidden gems of Tataouine, including its ksours and Berber villages.

Dunes of Ksar Ghilane: Endless Sands and Oasis Oasis Bliss

Prepare to be captivated as you explore the vast sand dunes of Ksar Ghilane, stretching as far as the eye can see. You’ll have the opportunity to bathe in a natural hot spring nestled in the heart of the oasis, where the lush greenery of palm trees contrasts beautifully with the ocher-colored sands.

A Sunset to Remember

As the sun sets over the dunes, you’ll witness a breathtaking spectacle that only nature can provide. And when night falls, you’ll retire to a cozy tent in the heart of the desert, where the silence of the night is broken only by the whispers of the wind.

Embracing Local Life

But the adventure doesn’t stop there. You’ll also have the chance to visit a troglodyte dwelling, offering a glimpse into the unique local life of the inhabitants of Matmata. To add to the experience, you’ll enjoy a delightful cup of rosemary tea prepared by your hospitable host.

In the Footsteps of Star Wars

Furthermore, you’ll follow in the footsteps of George Lucas and the iconic Star Wars saga as you explore Sidi Idriss. A local guide will lead you into the heart of a Berber village, where you’ll gain insights into the rich culture and traditions of the region.

More Than an Excursion: An Unforgettable Experience

In reality, the tent night excursion is much more than a simple outing—it’s a unique experience that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. It’s a journey that combines adventure, cultural immersion, and the sheer beauty of the desert landscape, leaving you with memories to cherish forever.

Discovering the Berber Villages of Tunisia
At 7:30 a.m., our team will pick you up at your hotel to take you on an adventure! Leave the island via the Roman road, the bridge that connects the island to the mainland, cross the fields of olive trees that stretch as far as the eye can see and head towards Tataouine!

On the way, at the side of the road, take the time to take photos and discover the first type of deserts in Tunisia “Le Chott” or the desert of salt (a salty lake). Continue to Tataouine and take the time to stroll through the local market. I recommend that you taste the famous gazelle horns! A local pastry made with honey and peanuts.

Then head to Chenini, one of the most beautiful Berber villages in Tunisia that you will discover with a local guide. This gentleman will be happy to accompany you for about 1 hour to discover the different components of the village! You will visit the dwellings dug into the walls of the mountain, the attics and even the mosque which dominates it! You will learn a lot about these Berber tribes and their traditions. At the end of the visit, don’t hesitate to thank your guide with a ticket, that’s what these young people live on!

After 1 hour of walking, you will be rewarded with a good local meal! And yes, a couscous accompanied by a soup, an egg brick and a dessert!

Around 2 p.m., we will hit the road again for about 1h30 during which you will cross the second type of desert “the Reg” or the rock desert! You will come across tribes of sheep, goats and even camels in their wild state!

On site at the oasis, take the time to bathe in the hot spring and admire this unique landscape where the greenery of the palm trees embraces the ocher color of the fine sand dunes stretching as far as the eye can see!

You will also have the opportunity to take a camel or quad ride in the middle of the desert! These are optional activities and to be paid on site with local service providers!

In the early afternoon, head to your camp to settle in and don’t miss the moment when the sun sets timidly behind the dunes!

Around 7 p.m., you will have an appointment to attend a demonstration of the preparation of the famous sand bread (bread prepared under sand and embers) after which you will enjoy a good Tunisian meal!
