Land wildlife Tunisia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

In the Bou Hedma National Park, you can see two species of antelopes: the addax and the oryx. You will also find ostriches, wild boar, mongooses and porcupines. In the desert, it is still possible, though rare, to come across fennecs.
