See the Sahara in Tunisia

Tunisia, a country with one of the most amazing evening skies, smelly, gray ports and delicious markets with street food. It is a country with ugly concrete hotels who are surrounded by a beautiful untouched desert landscape. You will come in contact with pushy salesmen and loving friendly camel herders. As you can see Tunisia is a land which you can hate or absolutely love. We are super glad to have visited this country. Especially our two days of adventure in the vast Sahara, the largest sand desert on earth which is something for everyone's bucket list.
If you want to see a lot of Tunisia, a two-day Sahara Explorer is the way to go. With 1200 kilometers you can see half of Tunisia. Slightly touristy, but that has a legitimate reason: the landscape is beautiful, rough and unreal. From the coastal town Hammamet most tours leave.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Sahara is more towards the winter. This means more bearable temperatures in south of Tunisia. In the middle of winter in January it might be too cold since at night it is often freezing. The months of October, November, March and April are therefore the most ideal.

Where to stay

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Hammamet and you are not on a budget go to La Badira. This hotel is more than amazing. We had a very relaxing and wonderful stay. La Badira is in a beautiful setting. The staff are tip top and always attentive to your needs. The highlight of La Badira is the elegant outdoor space and its infinity pool with a stunning view. On booking.com they get an average rating of 9.2 and you can book it here.
