With vibrant bustling markets, ancient ruins, great palm oases, the Sahara Desert and magnificent beaches, Tunisia has much to offer the traveller seeking something different. It’s a great location for film buffs too with the chance to visit the settings for Star Wars and The English Patient.
For schools we have access to an excellent Sahara desert trek – an 8 day trip involving a 4 day remote trek through the dunes, oases and beauty of the Sahara. It’s a perfect introduction to expeditions and a great alternative to Morocco, Jordan or the Sinai Desert in Egypt.
For families, Tunisia offers a really varied and interesting family holiday. Explore the ruins of Hannibal’s Carthage before travelling to the beach at Sousse.
Travel to the Sahara taking in oases, sites and ruins laden with history. Witness mirages on salt flats and take a camel trek into the dunes to watch the sun set over the desert before camping Bedouin-style. Lunch in a troglodyte restaurant on the way to the picturesque Isle of Djerba, before ending your holiday on palm-fringed sandy beaches, bartering in the souks and enjoying delicious freshly cooked fish
