Mauritania travel guide

Piers & Boardwalks · Nature & Parks · Sacred & Religious Sites
Vast, sparse, and unexplored by international visitors, Mauritania consists mainly of desert landscapes. In the north, the desert breaks into rocky massifs, hiding a collection of World Heritage-listed caravan towns, highlights of many adventurous Mauritania itineraries.
