The first stop will be at the salt lake of Chahbania, a photo break during which your guide will give you the detailed itinerary of the day.

Continue to the town’s local market and enjoy some free time to stroll through its alleys and taste the famous local pastry “Les cornes de Gazelle”.

Then, head to Chenini, one of the most beautiful Berber villages where you will meet your local guide “Zizou”! With his broad smile, a lot of love for his village and passion for his job as a local guide. He will accompany you for a walk of about 1 hour to discover the village and its secret corners! Discover the granaries, the houses embedded in the mountain walls, the oil mill, the mosque and much more …

Around noon, a local meal would be a good reward after the walk you made!

After the meal, it’s time for digestion! Now the route is about 6 km of walking in the middle of nature! Also with Zizou, cross olive groves, meet goats and sheep, maybe hamsters … Discover palm groves and water sources and breathe the fresh air.

Ksar Ghilane oasis

In Douriet, try to wake up early to admire the wonderful sunrise! Enjoy a good breakfast then drive to Ksar Ghilane. Considered one of the most important gateways to the desert, this oasis is truly magnificent! In the middle, a natural hot spring is used not only for swimming but also for irrigating the palm groves around. At all four ends, dunes of fine sand stretch as far as the eye can see!

Take the time to swim, to go on a quad bike or camel ride in the dunes if you wish, then enjoy a midday meal in the middle of the desert.

After lunch, departure to Matmata, the troglodyte village par excellence! Arrival and visit of a Berber family in their house dug underground! Inside, you will not only have the right to visit all the rooms, but also to taste a good rosemary tea, served by your host with olive oil, honey and homemade bread!

Continuation to the Berber village of Toujane, a fascinating village timidly hidden between two mountains… Photo stop then return to Djerba.
