Animal games and more
Man of the events at the International Festival of the Sahara are centered around animals. There's camel racing (like a horse race, only on camels), camel wrestling (between two male camels), a desert rodeo and even a rabbit hunt using desert hunting dogs (sloughi).
Take a trip to the Ofra Sand Dune
Being one of Tunisia’s largest accessible dunes, it is filled with adventure sports including go-karting, sand skiing, and hot air balloon rides.
Explore the craft fair and local bazaars
The local markets and bazaars are filled with unusual and unique trinkets. Sample one of the toasted breads cooked on the open fire by Berber women.
Watch a traditional dance
Be enthralled by the swirling movements as young girls twirl their dresses to hypnotic local music. Don't miss the chance to see the incredible belly dancers, with their acrobatic performances.
Respect the local culture and religion by dressing modestly, especially if you are a woman, otherwise you may upset the locals.
