Tour description

Experience the magic of the Tunisian desert at sunrise and sunset, and spend a night beneath the desert stars on this thrilling overnight Sahara safari. Zip through the dunes in a 4x4, take part in fun activities including Folklore Show, camel riding, and tuck into a delicious Bedouin dinner. After a night camping in the desert, enjoy breakfast before returning to Tozeur. 

Day 1: Start your overnight experience with a pickup from your hotel in Tozeur, and then travel into the desert aboard your Land Cruiser. As you travel, listen to your guide’s stories about the Sahara desert past and present, as well as the many customs and traditions that you’ll experience throughout the evening.

 Head through Douz Desert Reserve on an African-style wildlife safari, looking out for Arabian gazelles, Fennecs, oryx, and then stop in a Bedouin-inspired camp on the grounds of a private royal retreat. Make your way past the gently flickering flames from the lights that mark the entranceway, and then hop out of your Land Cruiser to take a seat at your table.

 Before your meal starts, a range of cultural activities is demonstrated around the tables. Enjoy an Arabic Mint Tea and sit back to watch the Bedouin chef food preparation. Pose in the sand dunes for a photo as the sun goes down, watch a bread-making demonstration or gaze at Tunisia's national bird – the falcon. Take a seat back at your table in time for a cookery demonstration, where you’ll learn how to make local flatbread prepared on open fire. Then, all that’s left to do is to feast on your 4-course dinner under the stars. Like the activities at the camp, the dishes are mostly traditional Bedouin specialties. After your meal, sit around the bonfire and gaze up at the stars, and then make your way to your Arabic tent — complete with comfortable mattress, pillows, and blanket — nestled inside the camp. Settle in and enjoy sleeping overnight in the heart of the desert!

 Day 2: Wake to a beautiful sunrise in the morning and to the scent of strong Arabic coffee brewing and to see your breakfast being cooked. Then, feast on traditional breakfast bread. After your breakfast, meet your driver and bid your friends in the desert camp a fond farewell before traveling back to Tozeur. Then, finish your experience with a drop-off at your hotel.
