Pictures from the tour

 

The Roman ruins of Dougga are our first stop. After sightseeing and lunch, we seek to place our first camp in the shadow of Table Mountain.

At 9 o´ clock, the morning start time, we travel the next day. A campsite in Tozeur is the goal. Here the stocks are replenished, as it now is, three days to be self-sufficient.

On the way to the Sahara we visit the camel rock and the scenes of the movie "Star Wars." After that, the first proving round is waiting for us: Will we make the crossing of the Chott El Jerid? In this infinite flat surface we want to build our camp for the night.

 

Today the first dunes of the Grand Erg Oriental are waiting for us. After reduction of air pressure and briefing about driving in sand dunes, the adventure can begin. First we cross small dune fields. The farther we advance to the south, the greater they are! The dunes camps in the quiet,
cool and starry full moon nights, invite you to dream. Again and again camels are crossing our tracks. In certain places, we find the famous sand roses, and collect for which a home.

Inventories draw to an end. In the town of Douz we cultivate at a nice campsite. The oriental market fills our inventories, including local produce,
for the next few days on.

 

The route leads to Table Mountain Tembain. About slopes, past the Desert Cafe by dune fields, we travel to the mountain. Skill and courage is needed, because the dunes are now getting higher. But we have learned a lot down in the sand, and so we once again enjoy the sand and surf, the quiet nights, then the oasis of Ksar Ghilane is reached. In the pool we can cool off and refresh in one of the cafes, tea and cafe.

 

Gradually, the idea of ​​the journey home moves closer and closer. From now on, the compass needle points to the north only. About the Jabal al Barani, with its magnificent mountain scenery, the trail leads back to Tunis.
Here, the still remaining dinars can be exchanged for spices, fuel or other.

With our now appropriated Arab composure, we handle the paperwork out confidently and take the 24-hour voyage. Friday night we end up in Genoa and then have enough time for the last few miles to our home base.
