There are definitely more Star Wars film locations to explore. Since all of these Star Wars film locations are spread throughout Southern Tunisia, it will not be possible to visit these sites using public transportation, especially to explore the sites located in the Sahara Desert. The best way to visit all of these locations is through a private tour with your own tour guide, driver and private vehicle.
