Lake Echkeul


The day begins with the discovery of the city of Bizerte which is one of the most French cities and the oldest of Tunisia. After lunch in Bizerte, continue to the Ichkeul National Park which is the most beautiful natural reserve of Tunisia. The Ichkeul wetland is one of the main wintering grounds for waterfowl in North Africa. There are hundreds of thousands of them. Composed of the lake of the same name, marshes and an isolated mountain range, it constitutes a unique set in Tunisia 25 km from Bizerte. This 12,600 hectare park has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a biosphere reserve. It's a paradise for birds. It is home to thousands of migratory birds such as greylag geese, whistling ducks, coots and storks. Passerines, raptors, reptiles, turtles and buffaloes also make their home in this park. The flora of the reserve is very varied. There are more than 500 species of plants. Perched on top of a hill, an ecomuseum explains the functioning of the park's ecosystem.

Surrounded by the Mediterranean, north and east, by the lakes of Bizerte and Ichkeul, to the south, the city of Bizerte is also accessible through a corridor (channel Tinja) towards Menzel Bourguiba and Tabarka, and a mobile bridge that connects it to Zarzouna and then to Tunis.
