Douz offers one of the gentlest ways to approach the desert. Cordons of dunes and elegant palm trees fringe the roads the sand slowly reclaims. This golden vastness of the desert is here, at hand, while the palm groves offer pleasant places to rest in the forests of date palms.

We will take you on a guided tour, on foot or camel if you prefer to watch the setting sun glide down behind the dunes. The Chott El-Jerid stretches out, its shimmering surface forms strange mirages. This ancient internal sea, mostly dried out, is crossed by a paved road.

Between these two great deserts of sand and salt – lie the villages of Sabria, Nouil, and El Faouar.
