Level: Fighters

Difficulty:

Lovers of prehistory will appreciate a visit to Abourma, a site with rock engravings covering nearly 3 kilometres: dating from the Neolithic period, it was only in 2008 that it was listed by French archaeologists.

This stay will allow you to take full advantage of the range of sites and activities offered by the country on land and sea: swimming on 3 beaches with wonderful underwater fauna and flora: Ras Ali, Ras Bir, Korambado, dugout excursion in the mangrove of Godoria.

You can even try to approach the whale shark in Arta during the season.

You will discover the mythical lake Assal whose beauty inspired the writer-adventurer J Kessel...

You will spend a night at Lake Abe to enjoy the sunrise and sunset in the middle of the chimneys, and to get closer to the pink flamingos; its lunar landscape was used as a set for the movie "Planet of the Apes"...
