Horse Riding and Camel Trekking in the Sahara

Let Tunisia First transport you to the Sahara desert in Tunisia for a horse riding or camel trekking adventure holiday.

We'll fly you to Tunisia where you will spend a minimum of one nights in a holiday resort or in Tunis, and then we take you on a journey south to the desert oasis of Ksar Ghilane. Sleep in a typical Berber Tent or luxury air-conditioned tent and ride an adventure in the Tunisian desert by horse or camel or both for one to ten days. We return you to a resort hotel, with cultural stops enroute, to unwind around the pool or in the spa before returning home.

We offer tailor made and ATOL protected holiday packages for individuals or small groups.
