    • Has anyone visited Tataouine recently?

      Tunisia Apr 13, 2014 at 7:36 AM

      Has anyone visited Tataouine recently? I would love to visit the ksours and villages (Chenini etc) in the surrounding area but I noticed this area as named in the 'avoid all non-essential travel' warming from the British FCO. Should we be concerned about this warning? When I posted a question on another forum recently someone replied that this area is dangerous and there have been a lot of riots recently but searching the internet I've failed to find anything about riots (expect back in January). I also noticed that other governments (Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada) don't specifically mention places like Tataouine, Douz and Ksar Ghilane in their warnings but rather just border area with Algeria and Libya and Tataouine doesn't seem that close to these borders.

      If we do decide to visit would you recommend travelling there independently and hiring a taxi to visit surrounding areas or combining it into a longer 4WD trip from Touzier or Matmata?

      Thanks in advance for any advice!

    • Any advice for 4-day 4x4 trip to El Borma in July 2008 from Djerba

      by christian_palmaerts Online Now Mar 2, 2008 at 6:24 AM

      I'll be staying in Djerba during the 1st half of July 2008. After having discovered the Ksar Ghilane oasis last year, I would like to "push" further into the sand dunes this year and I'm looking for any advice about what I have in mind: around 4 days, departing from Djerba in 4x4 to Ksar Ghilane, the Hwayhat Reched lake, Bir Aouine and El Borma (where, if my information is correct, the highest Tunesian sand dune, Zemlet el Borma, reaches 250m). Sleeping under the stars would be preferred.. Is this idea crazy? Has anybody any experience in that area? Has anybody any advice to share (including related to the price)? Thanks in advance.
