  • Camels Crossing

    As we crossing the Chott El Gharsa from Tozeur to Chebika we came across some wild camels. It was a real privilige to see these graceful animals in the wild. We had passed signs earlier warning us to watch out for them crossing but I wasn't sure we'd get to see them. They were walking across the road and heading in the direction of a small...

  • about nefta

    Nefta is about 15 minutes drive from Tozeur but it's a completely different town. It owes its name to the roman empire: in roman times it was in fact called Aggasel Nepte.

  • about Mides

    Mides... the last berber outpost before Algeria, which is less than 1 kilometre away. They also call Mides the "Canyon Village" because it is built right over a small deep canyon - very scenic. The village itself is very tiny... not more than couple of dozen houses I would guess, and a white mosque. . Being in the middle of nowhere - Tunisia....

  • about Tozeur

    As a teenager I used to listen to this sogn by Franco Battiato, an Italian songwriter, about the trains of Tozeur... the name had a mystical spell... For years I longed to go there, and when i eventually made it there, the trains had long gone. As a consolation, i went for my first short desert hike: amazing! the most obvious highlight would be...
