Terjit Oasis, Atar

Seek peace under the stars at Terjit Oasis. Lie on a colorful hand-woven rug, surrounded by a stream and palm trees, and in the company of curious locals. The tents at the oasis offer protection from the blazing sun, creating the perfect spot for reading a book or having a picnic. If you wish, you can spend a night in one of the onsite bungalows. You can also pet camels, which live in the improvised zoo at the entrance to the oasis. The site offers simple cooked meals, but you can also bring your own food.

  • ... After hours of desert an oasis where everything is shade and water trickering. The only noise is the trickling from the rocky wall as we sip a warm and fragrant tea. Wanting to stay overnight a tent is ready in this paradise cared for by the Hadjhadj family

  • The Terjit Oasis is a beautiful place and we really enjoyed the afternoon here. Sitting by the water and admiring the many palm trees and rocks covered with plants was definitely a highlight of our Mauritania stay. Even if you come from afar, you can guess the oasis between the rocks. A really fantastic experience. We climbed up at the side of the rocks with our guide. From above you have a gigantic view.
