Mauritania

Nestled beside the Atlantic Ocean and consumed by the Sahara Desert, Mauritania is the land of endless dunes and stunning coasts. Though rarely visited, this country is filled with breathtaking landscapes, authentic desert life, and the famous Iron Ore Train.

The Mauritania tour will take you to the best of this Saharan gem. You will see camel markets in the capital Nouakchott and watch fishermen set sail in Port du Peche. A day at the Terjit Oasis will leave you forgetting you're in the middle of a desert as you explore its quaint villages and swim in its natural springs. The crown jewel of this tour is the Iron Ore train. This magnificent thirteen-hour train journey will take you through the Sahara Desert to the Atlantic coast. All this and so much more await you in Mauritania, one of the least visited countries in the world.

We run our Mauritania tour multiple times a year. Check out the details below and book your next great adventure through the Sahara Desert!
