Help Rachel S with their trip plan: Going to Mauritania
I don't anticipate I'll get as much of a response to this one as a trip to Europe but figured it's worth a shot. :) I'll be crossing the border from Western Sahara into Mauritania, and staying for about three weeks. Two questions: 1) What is the safest way to go overland from Western Sahara into Mauritania? 2) What are the best places to visit right now outside of the capital? I'd like to avoid anything to the far east. Thanks in advance!
From the trip, Going to Mauritania
So to get the ball rolling, it seems the three largest cities in Mauritania are all to the west: Nouadhibou (about 70 km from the Mauritania-WS border), Nouakchott, and Rosso. Sticking to these seems like the best idea right now...
