Niger - Travel and Tourism
Niger’s natural landscape is what travelers generally seek out, and we too think it’s simply breathtaking.
The Niger River is known for hippo spotting. Plan a boat ride down this body of water for a day (or even a few days) to take in the animal sights.
Considering that Niger is one of the hottest countries in Africa, it is best to plan your trip according to what kind of heat you think you can handle.
A passport, visa, and proof of yellow fever inoculation are required upon your arrival in Niger. The U.S. Department of State recommends obtaining a visa before you arrive in Niger, as travelers may be denied entry.
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
Foreigners should avoid the border of Mali, owing to the lack of security around the area. As always, be aware of your surroundings.
Niger is a predominantly Muslim country, so dress appropriately and be respectful of traditions and customs.
The National Museum of Niger (Musée National du Niger) is located in Niamey and has ethnographic and paleontological exhibits.
