Welcome to our Mauritania adventure tours. We offer this goodwill expedition in the spirit to make travel a sustainable tool to help improve the lives of local people. Do not miss these 2022-2023 great overland Mauritania expeditions to create memorable moments as our Mauritania small group tours reach a climax with the former trans-Saharan trading towns of Ouadane and Chinguetti providing a quintessentially ancient Saharan ambiance amongst the ruined walls and sand-filled alleys.
On our adventure Mauritania tours, you will encounter nomadic settlements under Goat hair tents and transhuman villages mainly of pastors and camel herders. You will also visit Imragen villages and hear about the symbiotic existence of fishermen and dolphins. Mauritania capital, Nouakchott, creates an exciting start point for our seven-day expedition exploring natural sites and lagoons with the bird species of Banc d’Arguin National Park and monk seals at Cap Blanc creating in contrast to the arid desert with wildlife watching encounters way off the traditional stomping ground of binocular wielding twitchers.
This Mauritania goodwill trip starts from Nouakchott across vast swathes of desert, visit the ancient caravan terminal Trans-Sahara trade at Chinguetti and Ouadane, drive along the natural and little-visited coastline, and then head off on a desert expedition into the Sahara. Exploring Mauritania landscapes and cultural landmarks, you’ll travel overland past dunes, salt swamps, and mountains to Chinguetti, an almost deserted stone town that was once the capital of the Moorish Empire, and still holds a library with a fascinating collection of ancient books and manuscripts. On this particular goodwill trip to Mauritania, we will mingle with local NGOs for you to share your knowledge and advice as a valuable contribution.
The Atlantic shoreline, around Nouadhibou, is devastatingly beautiful with the wrecks of ships catching the imagination of pioneers of another era prior to heading inland towards the world’s third-largest monolithic sites, Ben Amera, which casts shade over the desert like a gigantic ancient sun clock. Welcome to our active Mauritania tours scheduled for 2022 and 2023.
