2-Day Sahara Desert Camel Trek in Tunisia
A visit to the Sahara desert is an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. It is a journey well worth the effort.
Visit Tunisia on a private tour and you are brought into a world of exotic cities, ancient ruins and luxurious sandy shores.
Situated in the northwest of Africa, Tunisia is a small country with part of it lying between the countries of Algeria and Libya.
Many would say that Tunisia has every aspect of North Africa wrapped up in one small package. Ancient ruins to be explored on sightseeing tours, exotic cities to see on guided tours, Sahara dunes to take jeep desert safaris, Souks for hours of shopping, stunning sandy beaches and deep blue seas for relaxing.
Tunis is the country’s capital city, an interesting place and perfect as an introduction to Tunisia. There are buildings dating back to the 7th century in the Medina, a labyrinth of alleys and tunnels.
Tunisia is a great destination for all types of travelers because it has something different to suit all. From the sun worshippers, the adventurous, the energetic, the historian, the archaeologist to someone who enjoys great food and lively nighttime entertainment.
The Sahara Desert covers much of the inland of Tunisia and it is well worth visiting the Grand Erg Oriental. This area is a field of sand dunes where you can go on desert jeep safaris, leisure camel rides or just go mad riding dune buggies. Ideally, you should plan to be there at sunset; there is no better way to see the sun going down.
From the sand to the water, Tunisia has excellent diving facilities especially in the seas off Hammamet. Here there are hidden sea caves, shipwrecks and coral reefs all to be explored. Alternatively above water try windsurfing, jet skiing or relaxing boat tours.
