Nothing. Do this in Gabes (80 km) or Medenine (60 km).
It is difficult to get out here without your own transportation. Best is to try to get a lift from Nouvelle Matmata (half the way between Matmata and Gabes).
The road between Nouvelle Matmata and Toujane is paved, while there is a small stretch between Toujane and Medenine that is not. Still the stretch without tarmac is easy to pass, we're only talking about 3 km.
As of 2000/1 you should not try to make the direct route from Matmata to Toujane, as parts of the road is still not passable, due to difficult construction work.
