To many, a crocodile farm would sound absurd, but not to the people of Djerba, who share an island with the biggest crocodile farm in the Mediterranean. It’s best to head there for feeding time to see these tremendous beasts in action but this is just one of the many quirks found in Djerba, the hot climate being ideal for this sort of attraction. Djerba has many fun things to do, and being situated on the north coast of Africa, will always guarantee fantastic views of the Mediterranean.
Djerba is truly an island for all seasons, Djerba holidays being perfectly equipped with unspoilt beaches from where you can watch the dolphins play, while also being home to Houmt Souk, a bustling market town for all of the haggler wannabes planning on bagging a bargain. Mainland Tunisia is only a short journey away, and if you have time then a desert safari is a once in a lifetime activity for the whole family to enjoy, just make sure you stock up on water!
Holidays in Djerba wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Djerbahood, an open-air museum that contains a range of styles and subjects painted by artists all over the world. It’s pretty obscure and there isn’t a huge amount of information available, but part of the fun is discovering all of the paintings on hidden walls and structures, a truly memorable aspect of what will surely be an incredible holiday.
