Once a vital pit stop for transport through the Sahara, the oasis of Tozeur is a prosperous city steeped with history from its distinctive taupe architecture to serving as the backdrop for the Star Wars film franchise.
Famously filled with thousands of palm trees, this oasis town enjoys warm weather year round. As the heat can reach 45 degrees Celsius in summer, spring and autumn are the best times to visit. The Sahara International festival in Douz (which takes place at the end of the year) and the winter months are also good times to visit. All-inclusive package deals for Tozeur holidays are available from Britain, and flights are about fifteen hours long (depending on the number of stopovers), whilst there is only an hour's difference between the time zones. Upon arrival, the city functions with a number of public transport systems to provide easy access to most areas. Taxis or group shared louages are also available for reasonable prices and rental cars are always available. Otherwise, walking within the city and tourist zones is easy and hastle free.
Architecture and desert mirages
Holidaymakers can visit the old town of Ouled El Hwadef, which showcases some of the city’s finest geometric architecture. A visit to the Dar Chariet Museum is also recommended, as is it the largest private museum in the world, housing many early artifacts, as well as jewels and ceramics. During their Tozeur holidays visitors can also explore the Sahara desert outside the city. Many companies offer camel trips to the endoheic salt lake of Chott el-Djerid, where Fata Morgana mirages may be spotted. History has seeped into every corner of this oasis town and Tozeur holidays provide a fascinating cultural getaway for all holidaymakers.
