Tunisia - Tozeur & the Jerid (Chapter)
This is the Tozeur & The Jerid chapter from Lonely Planet's Tunisia guidebook.
Far-flung and welcoming, Tozeur, with its labyrinthine old quarter and enormous palmeraie (palm garden), is the place to base yourself for longer forays into the surrounding area. Several oasis towns are just a short drive away and the canyons along the Algerian border are the perfect place for a cooling dip.
- catch some shade wandering through the manicured forests of Tozeur's palmeraie
- hike between Midès and Tamerza along the gorge
- drive across the mesmerising flat expanse of Chott el-Jerid
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Tozeur & around, Nefta, Gafsa & around.
