Tunisia is a country situated on the Mediterranean coast of North Africa. It appears to be a focal point of DHARMA-related activity. Scenes have been set in Medenine and Tozeur, which are approximately 150 miles apart in the center of the country.

Tunisian Sahara

Map of Tunisia, showing Touzeur and Medenine.

The Sahara Desert covers the southern part of Tunisia. Charles Widmore told John Locke that a certain part in this desert was the exit from the Island. After Benjamin Linus left the Island and got teleported there, the area was monitored by surveillance cameras. ("The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham")

After turning the wheel the following characters arrived here:

Abaddon comes to pick up Locke from Widmore.

Matthew Abaddon also visited here as he watched Locke being brought into the hospital. He later returned to pick up Locke and the two left Tunisia together.

Tozeur

Ben checks into a hotel in Tozeur.

After his arrival in the Sahara, Ben visited Tozeur and checked into a hotel. ("The Shape of Things to Come") Touzeur has been the trading center of the desert for a very long time. Two hundred and fifty years ago, the town hosted a thriving slave market; the unfortunate individuals were brought up across the Sahara with other goods by Tuareg-led caravans.

Medenine

Medenine is the major town in southeastern Tunisia, Charlotte bribed her way onto a dig site here. On the site, she found a polar bear skeleton with a collar bearing the Hydra station symbol. ("Confirmed Dead")

Notes

  • The Drug smugglers' plane included a map of the Sahara region.
  • Tunisia is on roughly the opposite side of the world as an uninhabited patch of ocean in the South Pacific, a probable location for The Island.[1]
  • After suffering the effects of the flashes, Charlotte babbles, "I know more about ancient Carthage than Hannibal himself." Tunisia is the modern location of ancient Carthage. ("This Place Is Death")


Unanswered questions

  • Is this "exit" a pocket of electromagnetic activity?
  • Is there any significance to the fact that Tunisia appears to be at coordinates on the exact other side of the world from a patch of ocean in the South Pacific where the island may well be located[2]
  • Was Widmore expecting Locke to arrive?
  • Why didn't Widmore have cameras in the desert when Ben arrived if he knew about the exit and was willing to get Ben?
