An evening meal will be served to nourish and relax while enjoying this exotic oasis on the edge of the cast Sahara.

Day 2: Ksar Ghilane-Douz-Tozeur
Leave after breakfast to visit a natural hot water source.  Continue towards the town of Douz, stop at the market to appreciate local craftsmanship.  Drive through Chott El Jerid towards Tozeur, another oasis. Your overnight will be in a 3*** star hotel.
