Whoever does not know the desert and has never felt its breath will be filled with longing for a lifetime ... (Arabic proverb)
From time to time every person needs a little desert!
Because the overwhelming scenic beauty of the Sahara will change your life deep inside. Get to know and love the Tunisian desert!
Their seemingly infinite dunes form those pictures, which need no illusion and inspire even experienced desert friends. Here you can irretrievably infect yourself with the "desert virus".
We do not want to visit Roman ruins and other tourist harbors on this trip - this is where absolutely and only desert and sand are in the foreground!
Meeting point for this tour is the port in Genoa!
By ferry from Europe to Africa and during the 24 hour crossing we have to fill in the various entry forms together.
Pictures from the tour
Arrived in Tunis, we set off for the south, overnight in a nice campsite with restaurant.
On the second day we will reach Douz, the gateway to the Sahara!
There we have the opportunity to fill our supplies, to get to know our Tunisian guide and to enjoy the comforts of civilization for the last time.
Because tomorrow we will start in the solitude of the Sahara, in the Grand Erg Oriental! Aim: the legendary "lost lake"!
First we cross small dunes. The farther we advance southward, the greater they become. The dunes, in the quiet, cool, and star-shaped full moon nights, invite you to dream. Again and again camels cross our tracks.
Far too fast the time passes in the fascinating solitude in the hotel of the 1000 stars and we have to and back on the way back.
Surely with the firm intention to come again! For, as an Arabian proverb says, He who returns from the wilderness is no longer the same.
