There are different ways to experience the Sahara and you will need a good starting point.  Douz and Ksar Ghilane are the most popular places to begin your Sahara excursions in Tunisia.  These towns offer quading and 4×4 truck excursions.  These seem to be the most popular ways to experience the desert.  From Douz you have the option of taking a short flight over the desert in a small aircraft.  However, to truly enjoy the desert, a camel trek is a must.  Taking a camel caravan into the Sahara for a night is truly spectacular.  There is nothing quite like it.  The silence of the night, and the glow of the moon, the spectacular stars are just some of the highlights.  And of course it is the Sahara Desert.  Just to say you spent the night in the Sahara is reason enough to give it a shot.

Before you go, remember that you can’t have too much water. Always have enough to drink.  The desert sun is hot and can dehydrate you quickly.
