Djerba: This half-day tour shines the spotlight on one of Djerba’s newest attractions, Djerba Explorer Park. Designed to be a replica desert village, it’s packed with attractions, shops and showpieces. Pick up traditional Tunisian pots and rugs along the pretty main street. Nose around the museum, admiring its impressive collections of Islamic art, which include glittering Berber robes and scraps of ancient calligraphy. And tour the ‘menzel’, an interesting recreation of rural Tunisian life, with whitewashed ‘houch’ houses, pottery workshops and an olive oil mill. The highlight, though, is the crocodile farm. This cluster of palmringed lagoons is home to 400 crocodiles, some of which are up to three metres long. Watch them dozing on the banks and peering from the water, and coo over the beady-eyed baby crocs in the nursery. If you’re here at feeding time, there’s another treat – watching the ferocious adult reptiles fight over hunks of uncooked meat.
