Tunisia’s Salt Lakes: A Photo Diary

In the west of Tunisia sits the amazing Chott El-Jerid. This area of 5000 sq km is part of a system of salt lakes that run across the entire region. It is a startling landscape which shimmers in the light and makes it difficult sometimes to see the difference between land and horizon. It is an amazing area and so worth visiting. You may recognise it from the very first Star Wars movie – Luke contemplated the two moons here!
