5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“A fresh and relaxing stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

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!

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

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 toilets and a bar where you can buy freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee.. etc. Make sure you have nice comfortable shoes, the terrain is not always even and you need to do a bit of climbing. It can get a bit windy also, so beware with flying hats/scarves!

“Magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Tameghza has spectacular views and sights, you can find sources of clear water go out of the mountain and come to pour in the canyon by forming waterfalls. It is an attractive place to cool and walk barefoot along the river. To conclude it’s simply a visit not be missed, peace, beauty and magic of the place in the middle of the Tunisian Sahara.

“Great Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

excellent little hike in a desert oasis. Beautiful landscape with easy trails. Even some water! Made the one hour trek to get here worth it.
