Douz, the door of the Sahara


The Sahara in Douz

 

Douz or Dūz (دوز‎) is a town in central Tunisia, known as the "gateway to the Sahara", and, for the traveler who does not think delve further, it is a good meeting with the enigmatic Sahara actually starts just 10 km.
A sea of dunes that are lost in the horizon of the world's largest desert.

 

  In previous times it was an important stop on the trans-Saharan caravan routes. Today, it is destination for tourists who are interested in seeing the desert, and a starting point for desert treks by camel, motorcycle, or four-wheel-drive vehicle.


In Douz will have the best opportunity for optional excursions by camel through the dunes of the Sahara.

Recommended at least one night in Douz. Accommodations offer good quality
