Tunisia’s Sahara and Oasis Ride

*** Named One Of National Geographic Traveler Magazine’s 2008 Tours Of A Lifetime ***

Rich with diversity, this ride gives you the incredible chance to see areas unlike anywhere else in the world and understand the amazing balance of nature, even in the most of seemingly inhospitable of places.

Your journey takes you through lush oasis and small Tunisian towns with ancient Roman architecture. Passing by the cave where “The English Patient” was filmed, you wind your way through the old streets with the Atlas Mountains standing imposingly in front of you, daring you to venture forth. The Arabians you ride are all sure footed and enjoy the nice climb into the mountain terrain with its breathtaking views over the desert in all directions.

As you finish crossing the range the landscape changes to canyon areas flanked with palm tree forests and a lovely babbling river. Continuing on, the flatlands open up with ample chances for long canters through the low lying brush. You and your horse will truly enjoy the wind in your hair and the wide open spaces.

As the vegetation slowly dissipates you begin to realize that all you can see in any direction is sand and visions of mirages shimmering in the distance begin to tempt you. But don’t blink as before you know it, you’ll be at the village that was used in the filming of “Star Wars” and you’ll want to make sure you have your photo taken in with the buildings in the background.

During the course of the ride, and before you finish along the banks of an extensive salt lake, glittering and glistening in the sunlight, you will have the chance to stay for two nights in an authentic Berber camp. This is true heritage of Tunisia and the dinner in the dining tent along with the bonfire are all wonderful preparation as you fall asleep on your comfortable bed under with a gentle breeze blowing outside. For all of those that are concerned about the Berber tent “camping”, rest assured that you still have hot showers each day and all other nights are spent in 4 and 5 star hotels.
