Tunisia is close to the main European capitals and has plenty of connecting flights to these every week. As well as the convenience of the flight and the savings in transport costs, Tunisia is a fantastic destination for shorter events in an exotic location. There’s the Sahara (which has been used as the location for many films, including the classic Star Wars saga) as well as prestigious sites like the El Dem amphitheatre. Tunisia is the perfect destination for product launches and commemorations, combining originality and solutions to suit all budgets.
Impressive palm groves, like the Corbeille in Nefta, are fantastic venues for dinners against a backdrop of a lush green forest or a luxuriant garden.
Cocktails in the dunes at sunset, dinner in a Berber tent or a night in a tent with every convenience you could need … Nearby hotels mean that it’s easy to organise any type of event here.
Alongside an oasis or isolated in the midst of endless sand dunes, there are plenty of camps and inns in the Sahara for groups. Some offer rustic accommodation in Berber tents, others have swimming pools and luxury services.
