We are Djerba Zitouna Stables
Welcome! Come and join us for a great horseback riding holiday!
We are Djerba Zitouna Stables, situated on the Tunisian island of Djerba and organise riding holidays for advanced riders on the beautiful Tunisian beaches but also through the calm olive orchards, ancient ruins and old villages of the island. Our stables are situated near the village of Mezraya and near the 'Flamingo Island', an 8km long peninsula of amazing beaches.
We have a comfortable guest accommodation with round pool and big terraces overlooking the garden, the horses and the beautiful countryside. Our horses are 9 beautiful and sweet Barbs, Arab-Barbs and Arabs, all properly fed and very well treated. The well being of our horses is very important to us, they are not the typical tourist horses you will find on the beach.
We bought most of our horses at a young age, gave them time to develop properly and started them under the saddle ourselves.
We prefer a relaxed riding style with loose reins and as little force as possible. Except for one gelding, all our horses are stallions. We find it very important that all our horses live socially on sand paddocks, having plenty of playtime with their friends. Because of this lifestyle they all have a relaxed, balanced character.
All you need for a great Riding Vacation
Come discover the beautiful island of Djerba on horseback. Relaxed promenades through the inland olive orchards, Beach riding and galloping over the fine sand beaches and the unspoiled Flamingo Island. Depending on the season we can also offer day tours.
It is possible to book a photo-shoot of your ride or swim. We also offer the possibility for professional or amateur photographers to stay at the ranch and organize a horse photography holiday.
Have you always dreamt of swimming with a horse? Here it is possible! Our horses love swimming in the azure blue water.
There are plenty of other things to do on Djerba such as diving and boat trips to spot wild dolphins, but also a visit to one of the islands villages or cities or even a desert excursion are definitely worth doing. We gladly help you organize all your excursions.
Stay with us on the ranch in one of the two comfortable bungalows in traditional Djerbian style. Both bungalows have private terraces looking out on the horses and the garden. For bigger groups we dispose of two more double rooms with private sanitary facilities.
