Douz

Understand

The town of Douz has grown up around a large palm oasis that stands on the northern fringe of the Sahara. Surrounded by little other than desert and dry scrub land, historically it was an important stop on the trans-Saharan caravan routes. Today tourists come in numbers, many on organised coach tours from the coastal resorts, to get a taste of the mighty Sahara for themselves.

Douz

Get in

By car, Douz is about 1hr30m drive west of Matmata on a good road, or 2hr to the east of TozeurTozeur. Much of the drive from Tozeur is along a causeway that crosses the Chott El-Jerid, a vast lake covered in a thick crust of dried salt.

Sleep

If you take an overnight camel trek, you will get to sleep out in the desert (and hence save the cost of a night's accommodation!). Be warned though - despite pictures in the tour offices of luxury Bedouin style tents, in practice the shelter is somewhat more basic and bathroom facilities non-existant. Still, it is a great experience.
