One of two vast salt lakes, below sea level and surrounded by mountains. Still subject to seasonal flooding and has a diverse bird population dependant on it. Flamingos, larks, bustards, can all be found there and wheatears and birds of prey have been seen close to the road between Kebili and Tozeur. Due to the Sahara shifting south, many species now have difficulty in crossing it so winter in the Sahel instead.
