We can also organise rentals for all types of transportation in the country, with or without drivers.


Discover Mauritania in West Africa

Carte de la Mauritanie

In West-Africa, Mauritania is known for the rich variety of its landscapes, cultures and languages.

In this vast country, the impressive Saharan landscapes in the north give way to the more fertile Sahel plains to the south.   Nomadic herders dressed in blue,  roam the northern territorry with their herds of camels and goats whereas farmers, mostly crop growers,  in their colourful "boubous" inhabit the south of the country.


So, you get it, Mauritania is not only an adventure that will lead you through the sand dunes of the somptuous and noble Sahara  desert.  You can also discover the Sahel region of the Senegal river  and the Diawling National Park where you will spot a rich African flora and fauna.

The country also boasts a 800km-long eastern coast along the Atlantic ocean where the golden sand dunes join the ocean offering breathtaking views, and ideal bathing and fishing spots where you will only encounter baby crabs on its secluded beaches. You will marvel at the views of the rich bird and sea fauna in the Banc d'Arguin National Reserve. You will also get to know the local fishing tribe 'the Imragens' who have been practicing subsistence fishing with the help of dolphins for centuries.
