Lake Haouidat (Houidhat Erreched)

Fairly demanding hiking through the high impressive dunes of the Oriental Grand Erg up to a small Oasis around a thermal spring.

Day 1: Djerba

Upon your arrival at Djerba Airport, you will be welcomed by our representative and then transported to Douz, where you will have dinner and spend the night at a hotel.

2nd day : 

After breakfast, transfer from Douz through tracks and passages of dunes up to the mountain in the Tembain plateau (Approx. 4 Hour journey). There we meet our Bedouin guides and their camels, which will have already departed from Douz 3 days ago. After dinner, we start for our first stage of hiking on camels. Afterwards, dinner and overnight in the desert.

3rd - 4th days :

After breakfast, we leave after the camels are loaded. Soon, the caravan reaches the dunes of the Oriental Erg. From that point, the position of the sun will determine our use of time. Slowly, but steadily, the caravan passes through the sea of sand dunes. The daily stages are 10 to 20 km lasting 3 to 6 hours, with breaks at noon. The kitchen is made on the camp fire; our guides bake patties of fresh bread in the warm sand daily. The camels are loaded and unloaded two times per day. It is in the late afternoon of the 4th day that we reach our goal, the thermal lake Haouidet Erreshed, which is located in the middle of the high dunes. Here there is a large number of species of birds, sometimes also small herds of donkeys, which fled civilization, enjoying their freedom.

We spend the evening and the morning of the 5th day on that spot to enjoy the fabulous environment of the thermal lake and to give camels the possibility of recovering from their effort of the last few days. There remains enough time to take a relaxing bath in the thermal spring at a temperature over 30 degrees.

And as all the evenings, we will have fun around the fire, dance and listen to the tam-tam and the traditional music of the region.

5th to 7th day:

After lunch, we leave the small paradise in the middle of the desert and we dip again in the sea of dunes. The caravan travels only through the valleys between the dunes. Without stops, it must pass through the sand dunes. We gather wood for the camp fire or merely enjoy the quiet and solitude. In the afternoon of the 7th day, we reach again the mountain plateau known as Tembain, where we enjoy our last breakfast. We return by Jeep to Djerba, while our guides take the return path on foot with their animals. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

8th dayTransfer to the airport.

Ksar Ghilane Tour (6 days/5 nights)

 

Roman fort of Ksar Ghilane (Tisavar)

Douz, the last oasis before the desert, is still asleep over there, behind the palm trees. We marvel at the beauty of the dunes. The camel riders gather the camels. They will bear the large Bedouin tent, mattresses and the immense aluminum mess kit. Also hoisted on the camels’ humps are the provisions for a week: skins of water, bags of semolina, chick peas and dates, kilos of tomatoes and peppers, large nets of potatoes and turnips ... Everything disappears in the deep baskets carried on the sides of the camels.

An hour later, the caravan starts the journey. Once we exit the palm grove of Douz, the desert is instantly there, a kaleidoscope of blond, pink, white and ochre. Sometimes the sand dunes are perfectly rounded, as if molded in a giant bowl. Sometimes they form of irregular hills, a labyrinth of golden sand. The long caravan of camels takes its pace: we advance slowly, lulled by the singing of the Bedouin. Living in the desert is a unique experience. Very quickly we forget about the concepts of time, money, needs ... on the trail of the ancient caravans who were transporting the goods throughout the Tunisian South (carpets, salt, coal, olive oil, skins, etc.).

Once in Ksar Ghilane, you will enjoy the scenery of sand, while benefiting from the relative freshness of the oasis and the comforts of bathing in thermal spring.

One kilometer to the east a stele is erected, the column of General Leclerc, reflecting the shift of his army in 1943 at the battle of Ksar Ghilane. It bears the following inscription:

« Here, from 23 February to March 10, 1943, General Leclerc and the Force L, from Chad, have successfully rebuffed the assault of enemy forces, inflicting them severe losses. »

Driving directions :

Departure from the vicinity of Douz to reach Lemezil, we spend our first night on that spot. In the morning we resume our path to Bir Elhaj (a well) where we are going to spend the second night. Third night at Mach'hed Fatma (marabou and water point). Fourth night at ELbibene where you will admire the great sand dunes. After breakfast, the path leads us to Ksar Ghilane. There you will admire the oasis and the thermal spring. We spend the fifth and the last night there.

For your information, the distance between the two points of departure and arrival (Douz - Ksar Ghilane) is approximately 100 km.

And as all evenings, we will have fun around a fire, dancing and listening to the tam-tam and the traditional music of the region.
