Chebika is an oasis which lies at the foot of the Djebel el Negueb mountains, close to the town of Tamerza, in the Djerid region of south-west Tunisia.

It was once a Roman outpost, but later became a mountain refuge for the Berber people.

Chebika is usually reached first, a route to Mides and Tamerza. It is probably the least famous of these oasis towns yet it is the most dramatic with its rugged rocks and steep-sided ravines.

In the summer it is quite depleted, but in the winter the spring is far more productive and impressive, with water gushing out of the rocks.
