Spirit of the Sahara
Spirit Of The Sahara organises treks into the Tunisian Sahara. Our aim is to make the beauty and peace of the un-spoilt desert and the close comradeship of camp life accessible to others, providing flexibility of group size and duration. Our treks are with local guides with expert knowledge and good linguistic skills and provide a balance of adventure and safety. We also support the Bedouin, without whom these treks would not be possible, by contributing a proportion of the proceeds to a fund we organise to supplement medical care.

Travel with Respect

Tunisia is a Muslim country, and dress code is important, particularly for females. Whilst a lot of skin (even topless) is tolerated on beaches and within hotel complexes, a modest amount of exposed skin may be frowned upon outside these areas.

Travel Safe

It is apparently not considered rude for a man to stare at a woman's body which should indicate that modesty will attract less attention. Women can expect to be the target of frequent catcalls ("Gazelle" seems to be especially popular).Travellers report problems being pestered either to buy something or for other purposes. Persistence is a major complaint. Some say that a refusal often results in a bad reaction, "being hissed at" is one example, but those who have been advised to refuse politely with a smile rarely complain. "Merci Non" is a good response, with a smile. This seems to be borne out by the reports of sole female travellers who you would expect to receive the most attention, but who often report the least problems (from an admittedly small sample), perhaps because they are more cautious than accompanied females. It certainly seems to be the case that sole female sea bathers attract a good deal of unwelcome attention (even molestation) until a male friend arrives.Theft of belongings, even from hotel rooms and room safes, is widely reported and the usual caveats apply - keep valuables in a secure place (e.g. supervised hotel safe deposit), do not flash too much cash, and keep wallets, purses and other desirable items where pick pockets cannot reach them. A good recommendation is only to carry enough cash for your immediate requirements and only one credit or bank card, provided you can be assured of the security of your reserves.Theft is also reported in the Airport. Keep your belongings under your direct supervision all the time.
