FROM GABES TO DOUZ MÉHARÉE IN THE DESERT
STARTING GABES GRAND CAMEL RIDE TRIP
7 DAYS IN THE DESERT WITH YOUR CAMEL
TRANSFER FROM GABES TO DOUZ FOR DEPARTURE
Trip in the desert with camels in the heart of the great Erg Oriental of southern Tunisia, from Douz
In camel trekking, you have only one riding camel to share with other participants. This is what we most often recommend. Indeed rarely people go up all the way of the circuit. A camel is not very comfortable. Camels also carry your luggage.
Young children can possibly ride in pairs on a dromedary
In the trek version, you only walk. Camels are exclusively intended for baby wearing.
If necessary, a "rescue" camel can be relieved to carry you.
