The oasis has its own water source and visitors to the Ksar Ghilane can even take a swim in its warming waters. You will also enjoy sandy landscapes and the freshness of oasis. There are three camps with Berber tents available and a luxury hotel offering around sixty air-conditioned tents that will make your stay a true Arabian story.
