We offer a range of Sahara Desert treks, starting and finishing in Djerba, Tunisia.

We are very experienced, and we work with the local professionals, desert nomads of the Marzougui tribe, to give you a high-quality desert experience. We use 4x4 vehicles to travel as far as possible before meeting our camels - we will be completely isolated from western civilisation in this remote part of the great Sahara Desert.

Each of our Sahara desert treks is an action-packed adventure with a perfect blend of sightseeing and desert peace. We offer seven-day introductory desert treks for all the family to 15-day long distance journeys for experienced desert travellers.

The desert is a wonderful place for clear the mind of all our daily thoughts and worries. Life settles into a timeless routine of local tea and fresh bread, walking, a lunch stop for fresh salad and a siesta. Then a few more miles before the evening meal, a roaring fire, music, singing and a night under the stars as you have never seen them before. You will return from the desert feeling mentally clean and rested.

We move at the same gentle, effortless pace as our camel train, either riding the Arabian camels (dromedaries) or enjoying the hot sand under our bare feet. Our guides learned how to live in this beautiful yet savage terrain thousands of years ago and are completely at one with the endless sands of the Sahara.

Tunisia is a peaceful, stable and completely safe country for travellers. Arabic and French are spoken. The religion is a relatively liberal form of Islam (Sunni Islam of the Malekite school). Our guides are extremely friendly and welcoming.

The temperatures in October, November and April are ideal for Westerners. Not too hot during the day (25/30°C) and with the nights around 10°C, where a three-season sleeping bag is perfect.

We sleep out under the stars, or in a Bedouin tent.

At these times of year there are no bugs or scorpions to bother us and we can walk safely in bare feet, or in sandals or trainers, or ride our own Arabian camel.

Autumn is the time of the date harvest - and we'll be able to eat dates fresh from the tree.

Surrounded by fascinating oases, and better known as ‘the gateway to the Sahara’, Pegase of Douz is located in the extreme south of Tunisia. It’s strategic position as the ‘last outpost’, but near places of interest such as Lake Chott El Jerid, the troglodyte village of Matmata, the Ksar Ghilane dune, the mountain oasis Chebika, and the great oasis at Tozeur make Pegase the perfect place to start your Tunisian adventure.

The oasis at Douz, up until not long ago,  was an important passage for the desert caravan trains that passed through here, and, despite the GPS system that has now replaced the ancient navigation-by-starlight used by the desert nomads, Douz has not lost its charm. It holds one of the largest oases in Tunisia, as well as almost all of the country’s date production (a major Tunisian export) which the area is now famous for.

The exceptional food, the warmth of the people, the exceptional year-round climate makes Douz, and its surrounding region, a favourite destination for any traveller who seeks the exotic. Pegase offers, nestled in amongst the camel treks and camping excursions, a 'baptism of the air' - a 15-minute flight in a microlight that gives you a bird's eye view of palm trees and camel trains for £18, or, for the speed-freaks, they hire out quad bikes for £40 an hour. No one with a mental age of 16 can pass up this opportunity to go bouncing and hurtling over the dunes. Quad bikes travel in packs with an experienced leader.
