In northern Tunisia just inland from the coastal resort of Tabarka is Ain Draham on the P17, Tabarka-Djendouba road. This village is surrounded by cork oak forest which forms one of the largest stretches of deciduous woodland in Tunisia and many of the birds here are difficult to see elsewhere in the country.
