Yep seems so, cant be 100% sure as hubby 2 be said it was Nov, if you have a look on the internet it is saying the same dates but I know what you mean about some saying December!

hope

Well, I do hope there is something nice to go to at the end of december as that's when I'm planning to go to Tunisia. Do you happen to know about some nice sportsevent or so (preferably handball) or festival around Tunis? And are there any horse- or dograces or something like that?

Not sure if there are any at all to be honest but I am sure that the Internet can tell you more.

Hi

Hi ya,

'The Sahara Festival was originally a Bedouin marriage market, in addition to the age-old rituals of searching for a partner, the festival also includes a lively mix of traditional music, dance, camel and greyhound racing, storytelling and great banquets. Situated in the heart of Tunisia, Douz is the last major oasis town before entering the vast sandy expanses of the Sahara'

I went to Douz for the day when I stayed at Nefta and I just thought it was amazing! It was like looking at a sea of sand. I would like to stay in Douz the next time I visit. Has anyone stayed in any of the hotels there?
