Visiting the Sahara Desert in Tunisia:

A unique landscape stretching across much of North Africa, the Sahara Desert evokes images of sandy dunes and starry skies.

Visiting the Sahara Desert is an excellent opportunity for tourists in Tunisia with a great sense of adventure, providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences hard to find at any 5-star resort.

How to Get to the Sahara from Tunisia

Although the Sahara can be accessed from almost anywhere in southern Tunisia, Douz is the starting point for all worthwhile trips into the desert.

Douz, the Gateway to the Sahara

Douz is a town built around shady palm groves, beyond which lies the Sahara Desert. Fruit and nuts, in particular dates, can be purchased here before venturing into the desert, much-needed sustenance for the journey ahead.

For those visiting the Sahara from elsewhere in Tunisia, there are several local transport options available including train, bus, louage, and taxi. Tourists should check the best option depending on their departure point.
