Ksar Ghilane, Tataouine

Witness the life of the local nomads at Ksar Ghilane, an oasis in the middle of the desert. Despite its location, the area thrives with plant life thanks to its hot spring, and locals make their living from date palms, goats, sheep, and camels. If you can tolerate the heat, try a dip in the spring. Alternatively, explore the number of cafes and shops, and grab a drink or a bite to eat. You can also visit the ancient Roman fort nearby, at the edge of the desert. Put Ksar Ghilane and other Tataouine attractions into our Tataouine route maker app , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We arrived on motorcycle sfrom efrom Tunis, doing various stages. Very beautiful OASI, absolute peace, red sand, dunes, evening walk with the Quad and sunset from the ruins of the fort. Lunch with Cous cous... Electricity rationed, the night comes off and it's gorgeous

  • We stopped there on our excursion me and my companion to have a drink and quench our thirst. There is a small water source in front of the café where there is the possibility to bathe. It was in ksar Ghislaine that I was able to quad bike in the desert for almost an hour to visit one of the many Roman ruins.
