Sidi Toui National Park is situated in the south-east of the country, 54 km south of the town of Ben Gardane. The site includes a low hill, Djebel Sidi Toui (172 m), surrounded by an extensive plain composed of small dunes, sebkhas and dry sandy wadis. The area as a whole is representative of the eastern Sahara region of Tunisia. In the north the vegetation is dominated by Rhanterium suavolens and Stipa lagascae. Around Djebel Sidi Toui, the vegetation is more shrubby, with Periploca laevigata, Rhus tripartitum and, in sandy areas, Retema raetam.
See Box and Table 2 for key species. Chlamydotis undulata is known to breed in the area. Large numbers of migratory raptors and passerines move through this area on spring passage; Circus macrourus is regularly observed during this period.
Non-bird biodiversity: The ungulate Gazella dorcas (VU) has been recorded.
