Start your overnight experience with a pickup from your Douz hotel, and then travel into the desert aboard your Land cruiser, a mode of transport used extensively in 1950s desert expeditions. As you travel, listen to your guides stories about the sahara desert past and present, as well as the many customs and traditions that youll experience throughout the evening. Head through Douz Desert Reserve on an African-style wildlife safari, looking out for Arabian gazelles, Fennecs, oryx, and then stop in a Bedouin-inspired camp in the grounds of a private royal retreat. Make your way past the gently flickering flames from the lights that mark the entranceway, and then hop out of your Land Cruiser to take a seat at your table. Before your meal starts, a range of cultural activities are demonstrated around the tables. Enjoy an Arabic Mint Tea and sit back to watch the bedouin chef food preparation.
Pose in the sand dunes for a photo as the sun goes down, watch a bread-making demonstration or gaze at Tunisia's national bird the falcon. If you want to immerse yourself in the culture even more, why not get a henna tattoo, smoke a shisha pipe (Arabic water pipe) or even try the traditional mode of Bedouin transport a camel. Take a seat back at your table in time for a cookery demonstration, where youll learn how to make local flat bread prepared on open fire.
Then, all thats left to do is to feast on your 4-course dinner under the stars. Like the activities at the camp, the dishes are mostly traditional Bedouin specialties. After your meal, sit around the bonfire and gaze up at the stars, and then make your way to your Arabic tent complete with comfortable mattress, pillows and blanket nestled inside the camp. Settle in and enjoy sleeping overnight in the heart of the desert!
Wake to a beautiful sunrise in the morning and to the scent of strong Arabic coffee brewing and to see your breakfast being cooked. Then, feast on traditional breakfast bread, washed down with Arabic coffee, of course. You will also hear fascinating tales first-hand from a local Bedouin who will be joining you for breakfast. After your breakfast, meet your driver and bid your friends in the desert camp a fond farewell before traveling back to Douz. Then, finish your experience with a drop-off at your hotel.
