Sahara Short Breaks

A short break with Saharatravel is designed with the traveller in mind who wishes to experience the stunning beauty of the Real Sahara in comfort and style. At the oasis of Ksar Ghilane in Southern Tunisia you will find a unique tented hotel - the Pansea Ksar Ghilane. A truly special place, combining traditional Berber architecture with five star luxury.

The Pansea is an ideal base to spend a few days in the Sahara without having to gear up for camping or "roughing it". British Airways and Tunisair will get you to Djerba within a matter of hours and after a private transfer on board a comfortable Land Cruiser you will soon find yourself in the middle of the Sahara - An extraordinary short break for the adventure minded.
