Ksar Ghilane, Tataouine

Witness the life of the local nomads at Ksar Ghilane, an oasis in the middle of the desert. Despite its location, the area thrives with plant life thanks to its hot spring, and locals make their living from date palms, goats, sheep, and camels. If you can tolerate the heat, try a dip in the spring. Alternatively, explore the number of cafes and shops, and grab a drink or a bite to eat. You can also visit the ancient Roman fort nearby, at the edge of the desert. Put Ksar Ghilane and other Tataouine attractions into our Tataouine route maker app , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We returned to ksar ghilane for the second time in two years. For us Europeans it is a kind of miracle: after spending hours in the car in the middle of the desert, you arrive in this oasis and find... A pool of thermal water in which you can bathe. Amazing for our concept of oasis in the desert. For us it's a stop to reach Campment Zmela

  • We're being sold dreams. An oasis with a hot spring. Cleanliness is not too good.
