Tour description:

Pure desert!

After our joint ferry crossing from Genoa to La Goulette / Tunis, we spend one night at a campsite by the sea in Hammamet before we head directly to Sabria via the motorway in the south of the country. Here we spend the night in a small oasis, get to know our Tunisian guides and enjoy a traditional meal.

Before we dive deep into the endless dune landscapes of the Tunisian Sahara, we spend one night in a tent camp on the edge of the desert, where we have the whole afternoon to try out our vehicles in the dunes to get a feel for driving in the sand.

Our journey takes us to the famous sand roses near Djebil, over the table mountain Tembaine from where we have a fantastic view of the endless expanse of the Sahara foothills, to Dakanis where we set up our camp for the night in the dunes.

In the next few days our path is determined by the course of the dunes. Only a rough direction is given to us … ever further south we are drawn to Lac Hwidhat-Erriched.
On the way, with a bit of luck, we will meet Algerian desert nomads with their camels and learn something about their way of life, which is so unknown to us, in this endless sea of sand and rubble.

After another night at the campfire in absolute silence under a breathtaking starry sky, we come full circle and we slowly drive back towards civilization, past Tembaine, the mountain we know from the beginning of our journey, towards Bir Boubaker and Bir Abdallah.

Before we head back to Hammamet on the eleventh day of our tour, we spend one last farewell evening together in the oasis camp in Sabria and talk about our shared experiences of the last few days until late at night.

On the way back to Hammamet we stop for a while in Douz, the gateway to the Sahara, to have a cup of tea, watch the sociable goings-on or buy one or two souvenirs. Here everyone can prove their negotiating skills again …….

Due to its nature, this trip has different vehicle and equipment requirements than our other trips. Precisely because we will be self-sufficient in the desert for eight days, a much more precise travel preparation is necessary here. Therefore, extensive initial telephone contact with us is essential for this tour in order to discuss all requirements in advance. Of course, after booking, you will receive detailed checklists from us, which are contained in the travel documents and are intended to make travel preparations easier for you.

We expressly point out that the trip offered here is pure desert. We largely refrain from sightseeing in any form. Adventure dunes, driving in the sand, silence and a breathtaking starry sky are definitely in the foreground here.

We look forward to welcoming you on this sand-tastic tour. Dive into the adventure of Sahra with us …

… your team from NPL-Overland.eu!

Kundenstimmen

Die erste mehrtägige Offroadtour für meinen erwachsenen Sohn und mich. Wir waren insgesamt sehr zufrieden, auch oder gerade weil nicht alles so klappte, da das Wetter Kapriolen schlug und den Weg immer wieder mal aufweichte. Wir möchten sehr gerne mit diesen Scouts nochmal fahren…

Abenteuer pur! Jeder Tag war auf’s neue spannend und aufregend. Dies wird nicht unsere letzte Tour mit Euch gewesen sein. Macht weiter so! Steffi, Andreas und der Ruby

Ich kann nur empfehlen, probiert es aus. Serbien ist eine Reise wert. Für uns das wohl schönste Land und Off-Road Paradies das wir je kennenlernen durften. Wir kommen wieder. Also die ganze Familie samt Disco!!

Geil !!! Für mich war es die erste Offroad Tour mit einer Gruppe. Und ich muss sagen, dass es für mich ein super Erlebnis war. Mein Fahrzeug ein ATV CF-Moto 800 konnte ich zum Teil bis an seine Grenzen bringen.
