  • Niger has the stark splendour of the Air Mountains in the north, with Neolithic rock art and beautiful oasis towns. Dinosaur graveyards are found in the dunes of the Tenere Desert. The South has the Sultanate of Zinder and the ancient trans-Saharan trade route town of Agadez. Niger is mostly hot and dry, so best visiting months would be during winters when the temperatures are much cooler.
  • Niger mostly comes in places not to visit for safety reasons but the people who have visited here find it amazing with ancient caravan cities around Sahara desert and warm and generous locals. There have been many attacks against foreigners and the threat of kidnapping is also high. So take advisory from the Indian Embassy, before making an itinerary. There could be language issues while conversing to locals as they mostly speak French or local languages like Hausa, Djerma, Fulfulde, and Tamashek.
  • Niger’s primary international airport is DioriHamani International Airport in Niamey. It is also the country’s only international airport. There are no direct flights from India to Niger. For a connecting flight, one can see flights by Air France, Qatar Airways, Air Algerie, Ethiopian Airlines, and Air India. Local commuting in Niger can be done by taxis and bush taxis.

  • Wildlife safari in Niger is a must. W National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to majestic animals like leopards, lions, cheetahs, water buffalos, hippos and baboons.
