OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

The town of Douz and the oasis at Ksar Ghilane are the starting points for trips into the Sahara. Unfortunately, I left Tunisia before being able to do these trips into the Sahara desert. Naturally, such trips require some planning, good, reliable 4x4 cars and GPS.

I was planning two trips:
1. A roundtrip from either Douz or Ksar Ghilane
2. A trip from Douz to the Jebil National Park & Jebel Tembaine.

Below are the maps and GPS coordinates that I had gathered in preparation for these trips.
