A few dozen kilometers from Tozeur and Nefta are Chebika, Tamerza, and Midès, oases in a landscape of mountains that is one of the most moving sites in southern Tunisia. In this breathtakingly beautiful landscape, every oasis is different. In Chebika, a wadi runs down the side of a steep mountain, forming waterfalls and rivulets where frogs have made their home. The old village of Tamerza abandoned like a ghost village, looks out at a spectacular mountainous landscape; its lush oasis is fed by a towering waterfall. Last but not least, Midès, tucked away into a dizzyingly high canyon, boasts spectacular views. you’ll get to explore the real-life filming locations of your favorite intergalactic epic. Travel between sights in a private, air-conditioned 4WD vehicle, getting a close-up to peek at Luke Skywalker’s house, the streets of Mos Espa, and the Yardangs, plus many more.
