Overview

Themed around Amazigh villages in the stunning northwest region of Tunisia, this day tour promises a total immersion  in the rich history and vibrant culture of the Amazigh people through the villages of Takrouna, Jradou, and Zriba.

 

As you can imagine, these villages have a deep story behind their existence. these villages bore witness to triumphs and tribulations, their foundations steeped in the resilience of the Amazigh spirit. As the legend goes, there was a time when the Atlas Mountains echoed with the footsteps of three brothers from the illustrious Ben Guiga clan.

These intrepid siblings, hailing from distant Morocco, journeyed to the fertile lands between Zaghouan and Enfidha. There, amidst the vast expanse of the Tunisian Sahel, they found solace atop rocky outcrops—Takrouna, Jradou, and Zriba. Each brother claimed his own domain, laying the foundation for what would become three storied villages, bound together by blood and shared destiny.

 

Step back in time and embark on an unforgettable adventure that blends cultural exploration with breathtaking natural beauty.
