I have been there , to Matmata and the hotel etc.
Its all quite disapointing for a Star wars fan , they left nothing behind when they finished filming , the huts and buildings are people homes/businesses so were there anyway.
The locals all wear heavy brown cloth cloaks to keep cool in the sun , they often have their hoods up - I realised that Lucas must have liked this and decided to use them for the Jawa.
A very interesting country to visit , really glad I went , I actually stumbled across Matmata whilst on a safari, but I wouldnt go there specifically for Star wars stuff.
