- 4×4 trip to the SafSaf Oasis
We will depart early, at 8:00am, from your hostel in the surroundings of the Erg Chebbi and we will go towards the SafSaf Oasis, close to the Algerian border (about 1 km).
During the trip, we will stop as many times as you wish to admire the wonderful landscape. We will stop to visit a nomadic family with whom we will share a traditional welcome tea under the comforting shade of a Berber tent.
We will continue our trip until we reach our destination, the SafSaf Oasis; it is a spectacular place, enclosed between unpopulated high hills, a wild palm tree with lush vegetation and crossed by a river with the same name (SafSaf) in which a bath is possible. In such a paradisiacal environment we will have lunch.
Before sunrise, we will leave SafSaf for a trail that will lead us to the Tissardmine Oasis, with its great contrasts of water, vegetation, rock and sand. We will stop to appreciate it and take photos and then we will continue our route to your accommodation where we will say goodbye and end this fabulous excursion and our services.
