Endless desert landscapes
You will experience how varied and varied the desert can be during a journey through Mauritania , land of endless emptiness. Mauritania consists almost entirely of sand and the enormous emptiness here is precisely the most attractive in the country. During a trip through Mauritania you will get to know all facets of the desert. Veiled people in dusty cities, historic oases and camel caravans. Sand dunes alternate with jagged rock walls and endless plains with oases with date palms. Prehistoric rock carvings show that people tried to survive here long ago. Under a beautiful starry sky you will experience absolute silence! A stark contrast to the aridity of the desert are the banks of the Senegal River. On the banks are bird habitats where endangered species settle and on sandbanks in the shallow sea migratory birds, sometimes thousands at a time, stop on their way from Europe to Northern Asia.
