Description

The "Hidden Canyon, hidden waterfall and most beautiful place in Tunisia"?
We stopped here for a photo and were approached by a man named Farouk, who claimed to have a secret tip for us. He advised us not to visit the well-known waterfalls but instead gave us another suggestion: an off-road path through a Wadi. Following his directions, we set off, but he followed us. When we tried to turn, he overtook us, insisting on guiding us. We drove through a riverbed, the path was pleasant, but after 2 km, it came to an end.

At this point, he started to argue with us. "No tourist knows this place; it's completely hidden and the most beautiful spot in Tunisia." I told him we didn't need a guide, but he demanded 40€ from us for 1.5 hours of guidance. I explained that I wouldn't pay 40€, turned around, and he left, offended. Shortly after, we discovered on Google Maps that it's easy to reach the canyon with a waterfall from "Camping Tamerza Oasis" since the camp is much closer.

We understand that people here want to earn money, but not in this way. Later, Farouk even mentioned that he sometimes earns up to 1000€ per day. This is unacceptable and not ethical.
