Unspoiled countryside near Hammamet

I'm going to Tunisia to look for insects, reptiles, and other small animals.

I don't dare ask, but is there anywhere within five or six miles of Hammamet that is not smothered with olive groves, orange groves, hotels, houses, fields, bars, supermarkets etc?

Satellite maps look unpromising -it looks just as built up as England! Is there anywhere nearby that has natural unspoilt countryside?

Advice please!

It's not that it's built up but there is not much countryside, i suppose because of the heat there is very little greenery! The most that we saw was in the Atlas mountains but nothing much apart from that. Sorry!

Regarding unspoiled countryside near Hammamet

Thankyou Justine for your reply -but I don't expect to find 'green' countryside -it is probably all scrubland and semidesert, but I'm just looking for areas that have not been spoiled by development where there might be some wildlife.

Surely some people want to get away from the tourist traps?

Trip adviser -can you please help?

Hi PeejayCornwall..

I'm Tunisian,there are for sure places near Hammamet which are unspoileted.

Within few miles from your hotel ( as I don't know which part of hammet are you staying, either Hammet north, Hammamet south or Yasmine Hammamet )

I can't give you the name of place or direction.

Feel free to drop me a line if needed.

Have a nice trip, I hope you'll find what are you looking for.

Thankyou for the encouraging message!

I will be staying in Jasmine Hammamet; I noticed on the satellite map there were mountains north-west of the town, about 10 km away. Is there anywhere a little closer? It all looks rather built up.

I am looking for insects, scorpions and reptiles -they are my hobby/interest!

Are there any places you can reccomend?

Thankyou for your interest,

Sincerely, peejay
