What people are saying about Tataouine Governorate

The pickup at the hotel was right on time, which was a great start! We were driven to the point where we met Abdul, our guide, and our camels. The three hour camel ride to the camp was amazing - so peaceful. The camp was very well equipped and they did everything to make sure we were comfortable, including setting up beds outside, so we could sleep under the stars. The evening camel ride into the dunes was again wonderful, though very different from the morning ride. On our turn, we watched the traditional bread being cooked, followed by a delicious dinner. After a great night under the stars, we enjoyed a camel ride back to the pick up point.

I highly recommend this trip. The guide was very knowledgeable. We were picked up on time in the morning with a nice 4x4 Toyota. The places we visited were magnificent. We had time to explore and get acquainted with local culture.

Very good excursion with our guide Nebil and our driver Abdoul, with excellent value for money. A big thank-you.

Very nice excursion, beautiful landscape. And I'm not talking about chenini gazelle horns, A DEAL....
