Live in the desert and dream as a family
Spending the night in suspended cabins in the heart of a palm grove, sleeping in a troglodyte dwelling or dreaming under the starry skies in a camp in the middle of the desert, bathing in warm springs and picnicking in a mountain oasis before climbing aboard a hundred-year-old train are just some of the highlights you can enjoy as a family.
Private transfer upon arrival at the airport and stay in Tozeur for 2 nights at the hotel “Diar Abou Habibi”.
After an initial exploration of the Saharan town of Tozeur, spend an adventure-filled day at the Sahara Lounge eco-park (à la carte). Find out about the life of the oasis, the palm tree and the date as part of a parcours d’accrobranches, or obstacle course in the trees, suitable for all the family.
Depart for Nefta and stay 2 nights at “Dar Hi”. Designed and created by the international designer Matali Crasset, “Dar Hi” is a concept hotel which overlooks the palm grove of Nefta and the desert.
Explore the mountain oases at the end of the Atlas mountain range – Chebika, Tamerza and Midès – and have a rustic picnic at one of them (à la carte).
The mountain oases are true havens of coolness in the heart of the arid landscapes of this region. They contain fresh water springs which nurture a whole range of fauna and flora. The sleepy Berber village of Tamerza, the lush bower of Chebika and the canyon of Midès, which was the setting for the film “The English Patient”, will certainly transport you to another world.
Transfer to a camp in the middle of the desert set up specially for the occasion for an authentic evening and overnight stay in the Grand Erg Oriental. A unique atmosphere with all the necessary comforts.
Depart for the region of Matmata, known for its troglodyte dwellings.

Stay a single night in a troglodyte guest house called “Trait d’Union”. Little children will love it!
Depart for Tataouine, a town in the middle of nowhere famous for having once been home to a French penal colony, and stay at the Hotel Sangho.
On the way, the landscape becomes more undulating. You will explore the hill-top Berber villages of Toujane and Douiret; in Tataouine, you and your family will visit the Memory of the Earth Museum, dedicated to the dinosaurs that populated this area 140 million years ago.
Depart for the island of Djerba and stay 3 nights at the hotel “Radisson Blu Palace Resort & Thalasso”.

Explore the charming village of Erriadh and visit Djerbahood, its open-air urban art museum.
