Tour Ksar Ghilane in 4X4


 

Romain 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.
