Kebili climate is very difficult in winter (very cold at night) and in summer (high temperature). The region is very nice to visit in spring and in the end of autumn.

Kebili contains a significant part of Tunisia’s largest salt pan, which is known as Chott el-Jerid, as well as the western end of Chott el Fejej.
