Tunisia - November 26th, 2009

Tunisia is the northernmost country on the African continent, and the smallest of the nations situated along the Atlas mountain range. It is bordered by Algeria to the west, Libya to the southeast, and Mediterranean Sea to the north and east.

The south of the country is composed of the Sahara desert, with much of the remainder consisting of particularly fertile soil and 1,300 km of coastline. A large portion of the Saharan zone to the south is part of the Jebil National Park, the largest Tunisian national park. The park has a total area of 150.000 ha, most of which belongs to the Great Eastern Erg.
