Tindouf (Arabic: تندوف) is a town in Saharan Algeria, in the extreme southwest of the country near the border with Western Sahara. Due to a large Sahrawi population living in the refugee camps surrounding the town, Tindouf is as close as most can get to a geniune (and a politicized) Sahrawi culture, since the "Free Zone" of Western Sahara led by Polisario remains inaccessible behind a border barrier and large minefields, which separate it from the Moroccan-occupied parts of the territory.
