Day 2 to day 7 : Trek hike in the Sahara desert of South Tunisia
Early departure for our 4X4 transfer from Djerba island to the palm grove-city of Douz, where we meet our saharian guide and its team of cameleers, before the beginning of our trek between the sand dunes of the Great Oriental Erg.
Our first stage of hike will lead us from Douz surnamed “the desert gate”, to Bir Belgacem. The following days, we will walk in the silence of the desert immensity, through Om Kenda, Bou Jouhiss, Rose des sables, Bir El Ghar, Ben Choud, to end our trip by returning to Douz.
This long walk in the desert will give us an opportunity to discover the fauna and flora that survive in this arid area, to approach the nomad culture through experience and exchanges with the saharan guide and the other travel companions, all being locals from Douz area.
To find your way in the changing landscape of the sand dunes moved around by the wind, to lead men and animals until the next water point, to make a fire of dead branches and to tell old stories, sharing the desert tea tasting like no other of its aromatic herbs. .. Those are experiences that profoundly affect the hikers.
During this trek, you will be acompanied by a saharian local guide, local cameleers, one being a musician, the other being a great cook. Camels will transport all luggage and necessary bivouac equipment for our six days hike in the Great Oriental Erg.
Arrived at the final destination of our trek, we will share one last lunch with our fellow walkers, then a 4×4 transfer will bring you back to the island of Djerba. Dinner and night in a charming boutique hotel in Houmt Souk, the capital of Djerba island.
