The last mile ... Unless you are driving or renting a car, the above listed means of transportation can only get you as far as Tataouine (22 Km away from Douiret.) To travel from Tataouine to Douiret you have to either take a taxi or rely on the very popular 'Rural Transportation' (Ennaql errifi), which is very similar to the concept of inter-city Louage but this time connecting the city center to the surrounding villages.
