Shebika Village Tunisia
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Shebika Village

An hour's drive from Tozeur, Chebika is perched on the slopes of a group of desolate rocks. Built with stones and earth, the houses have been abandoned for more modern breeze-block structures at the foot of the slopes. A crucial element in the building of any village in the country is the availability of water; here it is in the form of springs which have helped to develop a full oasis at the foot of the ancient homes of Chebika. At sunset, there is a striking contrast between the green tops of the palm trees and the ochre peaks of the surrounding area.
