El Chott 2016 – a rewiew

Today, almost four weeks after the end of the rally, the following conclusion is to be drawn:

A warm welcome by the CTN management and the captain of the “Carthage” as well as the fast customs clearance in Tunis showed us how urgently European travel groups are needed for the Tunisian tourism. Also in all hotels and camps we were friendly received as in the years before. Here and there it seemed as if the Tunisians belive, after our rally also all other individual-tourists will come back in large numbers. It would be desirable for all those who make money with the Sahara tourists, directly or indirectly.

Whether in the cities or the villages on the rally track, there were no incidents and we felt welcome at any time and everywhere – and above all safe.

To the participants in competition the rally offered till the prizegiving ceremonie in Hammamet demanding and varied routes and a well-functioning organization. And also the “desert friends” in the two tourist groups have experienced something and seen a lot from the country.

Nevertheless, there were so few participants on El Chott as never before. What is the reason for that? We want to organize the event in the next years also – for you, for us and for the Tunisians. Some changes in the route planning and the rally regulations are already planned.

But especially important is your feedback. What changes do you expect? How can we increase the attractiveness of the rally?
