Discover The desert Tunisia

South of Tozeur, especially at Douz, the 'gateway to the Sahara', earth gives way increasingly to sand dunes. Welcome to the largest desert on the planet! In Tunisia, the Sahara offers large amounts of photogenic scenery. The erg, or sand desert, takes the shape of hills, valleys, peaks and fine wrinkles shaped by the movement of the wind. Every now and then, palm trees signal a water point, reminiscent of the nomadic era and very popular with visitors.

    The vegetation in the Sahara is summarised by a few rare species that are able to survive on dry land. Most of the plants, like date palms, grow in the oases.
