Ichkeul National Park

The UNESCO Ichkeul National Park lake and wetland are a major stopover point for hundreds of thousands of migrating birds, such as ducks, geese, storks and pink flamingos. The area consists of 12.700, and the birds come here to feed and nest there. Oneā€™s North Africa stretched with great freshwater lakes, but now only the lake of Ichkeul still remains that covers about 8500 hectares. There are some magnificent views of the park from the visitors centre, a perfect place for bird watchers. The best time to visit is the winter time. The park is backed by the mountain Jebel Ichkeul with a height more than 500 meters.
