Southern Tunisia

Take a look at my site www.4x4-travel.co.uk
Let me know what that doesn't answer for you (direct) and I'll give you all the help that I can.
I've got tracks, waypoints, places to stop, things to see, people to meet and I'm also planning to go again at Christmas.
You should also find some useful links on the "links" page too.

More news:
The far south of Tunisia is a military zone, but until now it has always been possible to get written permission to enter the area from the authorities in Tataouine. It seems that this area has become a playground for dune-bashers who with little experience have been getting into trouble either by having accidents or wandering across the border into Algeria. He suspects the army have simply become fed up looking after daft tourists and have now withdrawn all permissions to enter the area even if they have previously sent their details in advance to Tataouine.

There is some talk that permission might be granted later in the year but only if a guide is used.
