Discover The Chotts Tunisia

The south of the country is bordered by salt lakes known as chotts. The vast expanse stretching beyond the horizon is a very salty sea, the arid Chott el Djerid. The magic of the chott lies in its mirages. On the road linking Kebili to Tozeur, you will frequently catch a glimpse of an oasis that shifts further away as you move closer, or silhouettes depicting a Bedouin caravan.
