Welcome to Djerba

To the classically inclined, the name Djerba conjures images of Homer’s Land of the Lotus-Eaters, an island so seductive that it’s impossible to leave. These days, many visitors voluntarily sequester themselves at the resort hotels along beautiful Plage Sidi Mahrès, but there are plenty of other things to do, including visiting some impressive museums.

Overnight Tunisia Sahara Desert Safari by 4x4

Day 1: Start your overnight experience with a pickup from your Douz hotel, 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.
