Mauritania constitutes a junction point between the Arab world and Sub-Saharan Africa. It is well known to offer a unique landscape at the intersection of desert and ocean. It is distinguished by its unique cultural heritage and the diversity and charm of its landscapes. Its desert offers great opportunities for adventure sports and hunting parties. Mountainous landscapes, clear beaches, natural parks as well as valleys and oases that can be found in various parts of the Mauritanian desert, are great sources of attraction for tourists. The cultural diversity of the country, combining authentic Arab values and African traditions is also one of the strengths of tourism in Mauritania.
Mauritania’s potential in the field of tourism:

  • In the foreground of these monuments are the historic towns classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, which are: Chinguetti, Ouadane, Tichit & Oualata.
  • The Mauritanian desert is characterized with its immeasurably charming dunes extending over vast areas
  • The oases which swarm in various zones of the north and the center of Mauritania are also an attractive element for the tourists, just like the landscapes where the mountain ranges embrace the dunes of fine sand.
  • The Mauritanian beaches, 750 km long on the Atlantic Ocean, offer great opportunities for seaside tourism and discovery tours in the three natural reserves: Cap Blanc, Banc d’Arguin, Diawling Park.

  • Roads and railways: Mauritania has a 704 km long railway line connecting the northern wilayas and giving tourists the opportunity to travel on the longest train in the world. It also has a complete road network connecting tourist areas between them and the capital Nouakchott. Added to this is the recent creation of an international airport, near the capital Nouakchott, meeting international standards in this area.

  • Ports: Mauritania currently has four ports along the coast, offering tourists an exceptional maritime climate and providing good reception conditions.

  • Telecommunications: Mauritania has developed, in recent years, an integrated infrastructure in the field of communications that meets international standards. The country is connected to Europe and coastal African countries by an optical fiber submarine cable. Almost the entire territory has Internet coverage and telephone service. Currently, the three telecommunications companies operating in Mauritania all provide fourth generation internet services at competitive prices.
