Days 1-2 Sousse

Start this family adventure in a coastal resort brimming with character. After a guided tour learning about Sousse’s place in the history books, take the opportunity to explore the Old Town’s maze of alleyways and stock up on exotic spices at its market stalls. With plenty of free time built in, maybe even enjoy a few hours of beachside bliss on the glorious Mediterranean coastline.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Day 3 Matmata via El Jem

Travel to the amphitheatre of El Djem and recreate life as a gladiator in this incredible Roman setting. Crouch in the dark tunnels alongside ghosts of the past who used to wait here before being released into the arena to entertain thousands of spectators. Leaving the desert behind, head for the hills of Matmata where some Berbers still continue to call the local caves their home. Explore the village best known as being the home of Star Wars’ Luke Skywalker and spend an unforgettable night sleeping underground in a troglodyte hotel.

Day 4 Kebili to desert camp

Visit to a troglodyte dwelling before continuing on to Kebili, where we meet with the camel drivers for a trek into the Sahara. There’s nothing quite like the rhythmic motion of a camel to make you feel like Beau Geste or a true explorer (anyone who prefers can walk!). At the end of the day the sight of the sun setting makes a splendid conclusion to a fun day. Tonight you dine on traditional fare under the clear, starry skies of the desert and sleep in Bedouin-style tents. You will see the cooks and camel drivers cook the traditional food, and bake bread in the sand. We are then entertained after dinner by the camel drivers playing traditional music around the campfire

Day 5 Tozeur

Head for the hills of Matmata where some Berbers still continue to call the local caves their home. Explore the village best known as the home of Star Wars’ Luke Skywalker and spend an unforgettable night sleeping underground in a troglodyte hotel.

Day 6 Sahara Lounge Activity Park

Head to the beautiful Sahara Lounge Palmeraie, an ecofriendly activity park, for an exciting full package tree climbing and zip line activities between date palms under the shade, a truly memorable experience! The afternoon is entirely free to explore the town and its oasis by yourself. You may go for a horse-drawn carriage experience across the Palmeraie, visit the interesting Eden Palm museum to learn more about palm trees and dates or go for a walk in the market and the old Medina.

Days 7-8 Sousse

Spend time wandering through one of Islam’s most holy sites, Kairouan, a city so revered that it is said that seven visits here are equivalent to one to Mecca. Head back to enjoy the mesmerising culture of daily life in Sousse. Before heading home, there’s time to snap up some final bargains in its countless bazaars or simply escape the urban whirlwind with a few hours swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. Why not treat the family to a final Tunisian meal before bidding farewell to this remarkable holiday.
