First visit the salt lake of Zarzis, a marvel of nature with changing colors.
Then we will explore the ksar Oued Soltane, famous for being the setting for some Star Wars scenes.
Continue your journey to Chenini, an ancient Berber village, then travel to Guermassa for a local lunch.
 
From there, the journey continues to Ksar Ghilane, where the stony desert gives way to ocher sand dunes. As an option, you can choose to take a camel ride or a quad ride in the dunes.
 
After a coffee break, you will drive by 4x4 to a comfortable Saharan camp, located 20 km south of Ksar Ghilane.
The camp, equipped with facilities comparable to a 3-star hotel, is organized around a restaurant-bar with traditional Saharan tents.
 
Enjoy the ceremony of baking bread in the sand, then after a tasty dinner, walk through the silent dunes and admire the starry sky (weather permitting) before spending the night in your private tent.

The next morning, after enjoying a delicious breakfast and enjoying a moment of freedom in the dunes, we will set sail for Matmata, an area famous for its troglodyte houses and for having served as the setting for some emblematic scenes of the Star Wars saga.

You will have the opportunity to explore these unique dwellings and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the film.


For lunch, we will go to the village of Tamezret, where you will be hosted by the locals.
You will have the opportunity to taste an authentic meal and discover the warmth of Tunisian hospitality.


After these two days rich in adventures and discoveries, we will return to Zarzis, where you will be dropped off at your hotel at the end of the afternoon.
