Day 1: DJERBA/ MEDENINE / GOMRASEN / KSAR EL FERCH / KSAR HADDADA / TATOUINE / CHENINI/ KSAR GHILANE
Pick up from the hotel and leave Djerba through the roman road. Explore the various surrounding area “ksour”: Medenine, Gomrasen, Ksar Ferch and Ksar Haddada, which were ancient Berber granaries used to stockpile crops. After lunch, at restaurant in Tataouine, continue on to the settlement of Chenini, one of the remaining Tunisian villages where the Berber dialect is still spoken. Located on a hilltop, it was a fortified granary, or “ksar” to help protect it from raiding parties. Next drive on desert tracks across the stony flats to the oases of Ksar Ghilane, surrounded by dunes. A spring supplies warm water to the palm-groves. It was once the most southerly frontier of the Roman Empire, hosting a "castellum" built by the era of Emperor Commodus. Dinner and accommodation at the desert camp.
