FROM TOZEUR CAMEL RIDE TRIP
IN THE DESERT
TRANSFER FROM TOZEUR FOR DEPARTURE FROM DOUZ
Trip in the desert with camel in the heart
of the great Oriental Erg of southern Tunisia
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 trip, 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. Dromedaries are exclusively intended for baby wearing.
If necessary, a "rescue" camel can be relieved to carry you.
