Travel Information :


  • Chinguetti
Chinguetti literally emerges from the shifting sand dunes of the mighty Sahara (the hills of dust that surround this one have been encroaching and encroaching for decades, and have even claimed some of the residential areas on the edge of the settlement). A place of eerily empty streets that have been chiselled and chipped by the winds, it was once an important trading stopover between the Med in the north and sub-Sahara in the south.
  • Nouakchott
A sprawling, dusty haze of a capital city that’s packed with tooting traffic and crumbling low-rise homes, Nouakchott is a curiously endearing place. That might be because it’s heavenly comfortable compared to the sun-baked Berber caravan settlements of the great Sahara (where most travelers are either heading or have been), but it could also be something to do with the city’s earthy vibes and unpretentious character too.
  • Atar
Atar is the gateway to the Adrar Plateau, and the place where visitors come to plan trips out to desert-shrouded medieval caravan towns like aforementioned Chinguetti. Sat close to the very heart of the country, but also close to the border with Western Sahara, the town has an earthy bazaar and sprawling crafts markets – perfect if you come in search of those traditional Mauritanian trinkets.
  • Terjit
Taking us just a short drive south on the main road out of Atar, the oasis town of Terjit remains one of the most interesting backcountry draws in all of Mauritania. It springs up from the dry-cracked desert lands on the edges of the Sahara in a medley of verdant date palms and babbling streams; a speck of tropical greenery surrounded by a sea of sand.
  • Banc d’Arguin
Banc d’Arguin National Park is Mauritania’s only large-scale national park. And boy does it deserve the title! A vast patchwork of low sandbanks and rock-speckled beaches that drops down into the waters of the Bay of Arguin on the extreme northern fringes of Mauritania, it’s famed for its booming biodiversity, which is highlighted by the sheer amount of migratory birds that pass this way each year.
  • Ouadâne
At the very end of one long and winding road that ranges from the capital at Nouakchott and deep into the heart of the Mauritanian Sahara, the dust-caked town of Ouadâne is a haunting, interesting place that does well to reveal the harsh realities of life in this arid, arid landscape.
  • Tichit
Tichit still clings to life from its far-flung position deep in the midst of the Sahara Desert. Another aspect of the country’s UNESCO Ksours, the town is a truly breathtaking affair. Look up and you’ll see the soaring tower of the Tichit Mosque, topped with crenulations and inlaid with interesting triangular window spaces (it’s perhaps the most famous mosque in the country).
  • Oualâta
One part of Mauritania’s acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site in the desert (the ancient Ksours of the Sahara), Oualâta is unquestionably one of the most enchanting and impressive wonders in the country.
  • Nouadhibou
Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean from its home on the spit of desert land known as Cabo Blanca, the town of Nouadhibou is the engine room of the Mauritanian fishing industry. Its seemingly endless docks, which fringe the frantic town along its southern edge, are home to a forest of sails and bobbing skiffs by the thousand.
  • Kiffa
Kiffa is an interesting crossroads town set under the shadow of the dramatic Affolle Mountains, which rise in sheer walls of rock and flat-topped bluffs where the southern reaches of the Sahara crash into the lands of the African Sahel.
