Mauritania

3.7
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. Much of the country's Atlantic coast has been protected as part of a national park, and its wealth of migratory birds make holidays in Mauritania particularly popular with nature lovers. Take a peek at our Mauritania trip planner: Mauritania and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
