Mauritania Travel guide

Mauritania is the eleventh largest sovereign state and a country in Northwest Africa. Atlantic Ocean and Western Sahara form its borders from two sides and the rest is bordered by Algeria, Mali and Senegal Read more

    What to see in Mauritania ?

  • Mauritania has vast, sun-bleached landscapes. It has the lowest population densities in the world. It has a cultural combination of Moors of Arab-Berber descent and black Africans. As Mauritania is a land about ocean and desert, it has an extreme temperatures and meagre rainfall. The days are very hot with night temperature sometimes reaching freezing points.
  • Mauritania is generally safe but some areas like border areas lined by Algeria and Mali or area near Western Desert is notorious for banditry and jihadism. So, it’s advisable to travel in day, on major routes or in groups. Arabic is mostly used for all purposes in Mauritania, though people use French in some areas. There is a time difference of five and a half hours between India and Mauritania.
  • One can take flights to Mauritania from India by Turkish Airlines and Emirates. The main international airports of Mauritania are Nouadhibou International Airport (NDB) and Nouakchott–Oumtounsy International Airport (NKC). People commute between cities by mini bus or bush taxis or trains. Unfortunately busses don’t run within the city so one can only rent a two or four wheeler.
  • What to see in Mauritania

  • Mauritania has Africa’s grandest scenery. The caravan towns in the Saharan Adrar region are listed World heritage sites but off limits to general people due to security reasons. The desert everywhere and the Atlantic Coast make up for the most of the scenery in Mauritania. The Parc National du Banc d’Arguin is famous for its migratory winter birds and fishing. The camel rides in the Adrar region along with 4WD expeditions and night time star gazing are the most popular tourist activities in Mauritania.
  • Mauritania is known for its Desert Oases. One can take a dip in the natural swimming pools amidst the palm groves in Terjit. Le Ksar Chinguettei’s ruins and libraries are famous for their rare manuscripts. Camel safaris in the dune fields of Tanouchert remote are also a must do tourist thing. See the old stone houses at Ksar al Kiali Ouadane.
  • The cuisine of Mauritania’s Moors is rather unremarkable and with limited variety. Most dishes are limited to rice, mutton, camel, goat or dried fish. The food in South Mauritania has more variety and is spicier too.
  • Mauritania has an almost extinct nightlife. Group of men can be found smoking a shisha in terms of night entertainment. Alcohol is forbidden but few restaurants in Nouâdhibou serve it.
  • There are no nightclubs or bars, just French Cultural centre or cafes with live music.
  • Mauritania has most option of traditional clothes, crafts or artefacts in terms of shopping. One can shop for wooden chests with silver work or silver daggers, jewellery, rugs made from camel or goat hair, Kiffa beads, leatherwork and camel sandals in Mauritania. Most of the products are handmade and hand dyed.
