The oasis
Gafsa, Tunisia

Gafsa, Tunisia

The oasis of Gafsa is about as good as any, although there are few roads leading into. So you will have to swallow a deep breath of courage, and walk into someone's gardens. But as long as you walk on the paths and there aren't too many in the group, nobody will really mind.
The whole oasis is fairly big, and has more than 100,000 palm trees, plus a wide variety of other plants.
