  • Camel ride

    Douz Things to Do

    Riding a camel on the Sahara was the highlight of our trip to tunisia. When we got there we were all given robes to wear. They looked a bit silly but it was fun and it protected us from the sun. The we went out to the sand dunes and got on the camels. The ride lasted about an hour. We had a stop about half way to take some photos. The sand is a lot...

  • RIDE A CAMEL - OR DON'T

    Douz Things to Do

    The Sahara Desert starts just outside the Al Mouradi Hotel. And so the Camel rides begin. The local Bedouin have hundreds of camels for you to ride - or not. The smell is overpowering. For a few dollars you can enjoy a quick journey into the desert before retiring to your hotel.

  • Old Kebili Museum

    Kebili Things to Do

    Kebili Things to Do

    The mosque's minaret stands tall above the ruins and is quite a sad sight. Apart from the small whitewashed zaouias, it is the only real surviving structure of Old Kebili. The mosque building itself doesn't look as old as the minaret, but is still in use, as you will hear five times a day...the muezzin still calls the faithful to prayer, even...

  • Zaouia spotting in old Kebili

    Kebili Things to Do

    Four or five zaouias (also known as marabouts...think of them as mini mosques) still stand in Kebili, and a couple of them are used regularly. I met members of the Aissawiya Sufi sect who invited me to their Mawlid an-Nebi (Prophet's Birthday) celebrations in one of the zaouias. A group of old men in ragged clothing sat on a raised platform, one...
