Mauritania - Travel and Tourism
One of the largest countries in North Africa, Mauritania is a mix of desert and ocean—but mostly desert.
There’s plenty to do in Mauritania’s capital city, including dropping by the many souks or markets.
Mauritania’s rainy season lasts from July to September; average rainfall during the year is about 20 to 23 inches.
All travelers except West African nationals need a visa to get into Mauritania.
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
As mentioned before, women should take care not to follow men into enclosed environments, like offices or cars.
Mauritania is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and by Western Sahara, Algeria, Mali.
The National Museum (Musee National du Nouakchott) is located in Nouakchott and has archaeology and ethnography collections.
