Striking Images of an Unforgettable Experience to Enjoy in Tunisia
Rolling golden sand dunes beneath an azure sky create a beautiful backdrop for this picture of a camel caravan in Tunisia's Sahara desert, as captured here for you on this Worldwide Gifts collectible refrigerator magnet. You may have chosen Tunisia as your holiday destination for its magnificent beaches along the Mediterranean shores, or for its interesting historical and cultural landmarks. However, regardless of your reasons for visiting this stunning North African country, you must certainly include an excursion into the Sahara desert as part of your travel itinerary, and collect this fridge magnet as a keepsake souvenir from Tunisia.
There are several guide outfits that conduct desert excursions or safaris in Tunisia, and you have the options of traveling by four-wheel drive Jeep, by camel, by horse-back or a combination of these modes of desert transport, depending on how long you want to travel and explore the Sahara, and the different places you may want to visit.
Some of the Exciting Sights of a Sahara Excursion in Tunisia
There is more to a Sahara excursion than just miles and miles of undulating sand dunes, although you'll certainly see plenty of those. Some of the Sahara sights include the World Heritage Listed amphitheater at El Djem, an ancient Roman construction from 238 BC. You can stand here and imagine the chariot races and gladiator shows that once took place here.
Another interesting attraction for a Sahara tour is the small Berber village of Matmata, where the residents live in traditional underground "troglodyte" structures. You may also visit the extraordinary Chott el Djerid, a massive salt pan of the Sahara which in summer is nearly completely dry and can be crossed on foot, but in winter is filled with salt water. This area was used in the filming of the movie "Star Wars."
