After breakfast, checkout and departure to Kairouan (01H20 driving = 90 Km): the city which rises like a dream of ochre and tawny beige, bearing in its serenity 13 centuries of Islamic culture. Behold the wondrous beauty of its mosques, the symphony of its columns and arches and the exquisite delicacy of the stone work. Visit of the Great Mosque of Uqba Bin Nafi, an important Islamic landmark and architecture which was built in the 9th century. Next, visit Sidi Sahbi Mausoleum, which houses the tomb of one of Prophet Mohammed's companions known as the Barber and the Aghlabiden pools.

After Breakfast, departure in 4X4 to visit the Mountain oasis of Chebika/Tamerza/ Midès (01H00 driving= 70 Km). ₋ In Chebika, the refreshing water rushes over an imposing waterfall to form a wadi surrounded by palm trees at the bottom of a gorge. Tamerza looks barricaded by its mountain range, as if suspended on the side of a vast canyon with commanding views over the vast plains as far as the Chott and the sand hills. Finally, there is Midès – the western – most and arguably the most impressive of these oases which overlooks a breathtakingly high canyon. Return to Tozeur (01H00 driving = 70 Km) and lunch in EDEN PALM. ₋ Departure to Douz via Chott El Jerid (01H30 driving = 100 Km) Stop for photo in Chott El Jerid (it’s sunbaked surface, composed of a hard crust of sodium chloride, conceals sources of underground water and the area has a vivid red color due to the high iron content).
