Travel Tips from people who've been to Douz
On imagine des dunes géantes, une mer de sable toute crêtée d'or, les pas feutrés des chameaux dans le silence du Grand Erg... Le Sahara tunisien est tout cela, mais bien plus encore. C'est aussi les villages berbères perchés au sommet des collines abruptes, les surprenant Ksour ou châteaux du désert, les habitations troglodytiques creusées à même la roche...
Douz is where many a desert tour overnight and here you get your 'camel ride' experience. All this is a bit too mainstream and touristy for my liking. The town itself is typically desert Tunisian, not much of interest but fair enough in all respects.
Douz, sometimes called 'the gateway to Sahara' is the place where you don't have to shop or party or do the sight-seeing but you definitely must do one thing - ride a camel into Sahara!
