Bivouac accommodation under the stars

Day 03Start of the Caravan

Wake up gently with the first rays of the sun. Light the fire to prepare the sand loaf and have breakfast. You are beginning the caravan and departure to our campsite for the second night. A hike at your own pace for two or three hours, during which you will enjoy the landscapes. Whenever you feel tired, your faithful friend, the dromedary, will lower itself to transport you.
Stop for lunch in mid-afternoon. Continue for 2 hours of walking between the dunes before sunset. You will set up the tent tents in the middle of the desert, where the only noise you will hear will be the songs of the camel drivers and their stories.

Route: 4 to 6h
Stages: Hdif El Boum
Accommodation: Bivouac under Berber tent

Day 04 El Biben (Sand dunes)

Once the first rays of the sun penetrate your tents, you will be woken up with a head already full of memories of the previous evening and a smile drawn on your face. (Faces that will be full of sands). The camel drivers would have already lit the fire and prepared the table for a delicious breakfast. Our daily program will start, and we will follow the rhythm of our camels….
Light lunch and continue to El Biben, where you will set up the tents and prepare dinner to which you can contribute by finding the wood to light the fire and learn to cook with a minimum. Dinner, Saharan vigil, and overnight in peace.

Route: 4 to 6h
Main Destination: El Biben
Accommodation: Bivouac under Berber tent

Day 05 Towards Zmela (Zmela means the big dune)

With the first rays of the sun caressing you, you will wake up with a smile on your face. You will have taken the rhythm and learned the morning habits of the camel drivers: install breakfast on the dunes, prepare the sand bread and meet around the fire to eat. Like every day, a well-defined pace of walking in the footsteps of dromedaries, except that today it will be a little faster to reach the camp and enjoy a good shower finally. Towards sunset, you will arrive at Zmela camp, located in a sublime setting between the delicate dunes; you will return to your tent, take your showers and your dinner and enjoy a Saharan evening.

Route: 6 to 8h
Main Destination: Zmela
Accommodation: Zmela Camp

Day 06The hot spring and the Troglodyte village

After breakfast, you will leave the camel drivers, who will take the road back and get in a private vehicle. Our first stop will be at the oasis of Ksar Ghilane to enjoy the free time between the palm trees and a swim in the hot spring. The quad bike ride in the dunes (extra and paid on-site). Continue to the famous village of Matmata, this troglodyte village par excellence with a photo stop at the Berber village of Tamazret. Arrive in Matmata and visit a homestay where we will be greeted by good rosemary tea, olive oil, and honey offered by our host. Typical midday meal with the locals. After the meal, return to Tunis.

Route: 570 Kms
