While doing the 2 day Sahara tour we went to the Tamerza Canyon waterfalls in our 4x4 Landcruisers after visiting Tozeur and my goodness this place feels like heaven. We passed through a mountain oasis place Chebika which was nice before arriving at Tamerza. The Tamerza canyon is Beautiful with nice waterfalls. I have seen 2 canyons on this trip... More

this was a very beautiful place indeed however it was well off the main road and there was construction that made the ride difficult. I would only go back when roads are complete and they may be by now.

Gem of a place, part of my tour with Ali Saadi Touareg Tours from Tozeur, an excellent Sahara guide, who took me into the desert and the mountains around Tozeur.

We took a 4x4 trip to Tamerza as one of the optional offers on our all inclusive Tunisia trip, and on the way we stopped at Chebika where we took a walk through the mountains and down to the small oasis. We were told this was where the English Patient had been filmed and also Indiana Jones, but we couldn't... More

This was a site I absolutely wanted to see after admiring photos on the Internet. However, once you are there, you see that the site is rather small, overrun by tourist traps (the souvenir hawkers), and quite busy with tourists so that it is hard to take a picture without strangers in it. I think we could have ventured deeper... More

A bit like Toyota Land Cruiser World, but forget that it's a honey pot and brave the walk beyond the tourist trap into the gorges and over the mountains, where you are likely to be entirely alone. Then it merits 5*.

More than 20 years have passed since I lived in Tozeur and visited Tamerza Canyon. The beauty of this place continues to haunt me and I long to return.

After driving and driving kilometers in desert, you stopped at that place. Beautiful canyon with a nice oasis with a cool, refreshing waterfall at it's bottom. It is so relaxing and peacefull. Take time to make nice pictures!

We visited this site as part of a 2-day tour throughout Tunisia. We were taken to the place by jeeps, and then a hike through the canyon. The views are absolutely amazing and you don't have many people around pestering you trying to sell stuff like in other places. There are also nice facilities on site (after the hike), with... More
