Oases are usually considered lifesaving beacons in the desert, as they save you from sweltering heat. Contrary to popular belief, Kebili Oasis in Tunisia is among the hottest places on the planet. Despite the presence of lush trees and relative shade, the temperature here often rises to 55°C, which is pretty impressive even by African standards.
Oasis Kebili is inhabited; its indigenous people have long been accustomed to hard climate and can’t imagine their life elsewhere. As it was found by scientist, the first settlements on the territory of the oasis have appeared thousands of years ago. Modern scientists were able to find an explanation for the current natural anomaly. Picturesque Kebili is on way of the sirocco wind that originates in the heart of the Sahara and moves the hot air of the desert to the north.
Today Kebili is a modern city, which covers the entire territory of the oasis and has all the important features inherent to conventional settlements. There are several hotels within the city and these places aren’t neglected by tourists. There are lots of notable sites nearby, including the salt lake Chott el Djerid. In times of drought the lake is always dry, but eventually it’s re-filled with water. Kebili is ready to offer its guests all facilities for interesting and informative holiday. Next - Death Valley
