Not to miss:  Douz, with its maze of sandy roads and painted homes, is a haven for its visitors. It is also home to the Museum of the Sahara a fascinating assortment portraying Saharan life. On Thursdays, Douz’s charming souk a white stuccoed square surrounded by little shops with arched facades evolves into a lively marketplace.
In November or December, this town hosts the International Festival of the Sahara a four-day celebration that showcases the traditional nomadic desert culture.
For those with a penchant for culinary delights, Restaurant Les Palmiers at the town centre ... More is as memorable as the food it serves.

At the town centre, tour operators organize regular overnight safaris and day treks into the desert. Whether on camel back, in a four-wheeler or on a motorbike, when in Douz, be sure to venture into the mighty Sahara.

General opinion:  Douz, in central Tunisia, is a palm oasis surrounded by the desert. It lies on the northern fringes of the Sahara and is more popularly known as the ‘Gateway to the Sahara’. With a population of not more than 30,000 inhabitants, Douz is a centre of culture and commerce.

It has an ideal Mediterranean climate mild to warm, sunny winters and dry hot summers and does not get much rain; at times, the winter temperature may drop quite low. Summer is the ideal time to visit.

Historically, Douz was a significant stop on the trans-Saharan ... More caravan routes. Today, it is a bustling tourist destination opening its doors to the Great Erg (sand sea).

The inhabitants of Douz are mainly the Mrazig amel-raising nomads descending from the Banu Saleim tribe. The main occupations in Douz are animal herding and date harvesting.
