Glamping connects you with the land on a personal level without having to rough it, and brings tourism out of the cities and into Tunisia’s wilderness.
Douz is one of the most exciting places in Tunisia. The town acts as a curtain for the wonders just to the south of the country.
Driving through the compact, narrow streets of the centre, you’ll wonder what all the hype is about. Why journey to this remote outpost which appears abandoned during the intense midday summer heat?
But as the sun sets and the streets cool, Douz comes alive – the cafes around the central Souk fill up and as you pass through the intervening palmeraie (palm grove), the sight of the Grand Erg Oriental reveals its magical self, a seeming mirage until you set foot on its sandy shore.

Glamping Bubbles Douz, is a new hotel which will offer guests an original and authentic experience under the stars with all mod cons.

An international franchise of “Sky bubbles”, it is a first in Africa, Glamping Bubbles is the home of the future since each bubble can be equipped with an air purifier which removes 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.
At the initiative of Nadia Makni, a traveler who visited 45 countries around the world, has decided to import this innovative concept and offer an alternative to hotel constructions and restaurants.
Aside from putting the idea of experience-based travel into action, glamping allows for the following: connection with the Tunisian land on an up-close-and-personal level without having to “rough it,” and bringing tourism out of the coastal cities and into the expansive wilderness that makes up a large portion of the country.
As the glamping movement picks up steam in Tunisia, you really can have your cake and eat it too — in comfort and style.
