Is this trip right for you:
  • You will need to be moderately fit to take part in the roughly 3-hour trek across the Sahara Desert. Camels will carry your luggage and it is possible to take turns resting on their backs.
  • Camping in the Sahara Desert is an amazing experience, but the facilities range from the basic to the non-existent (in the case of toilets).
  • Be prepared for a bit of good natured bartering when making purchases. Talk to your leader for some handy haggling tips
  • While you’re probably expecting it to be hot, evening’s in the desert can be surprisingly cool. You’ll need to have clothing that is suitable for potential changes in weather conditions.
  • Tourism is slowly returning to Tunisia, but the industry is still recovering. Some of the hotels we use may have minor maintenance issues, but rest assured they’ll be clean and comfortable
