Discover The Jewel Of The Sahara With Our Tours To Mauritania

As a country famed for its diverse geography, rich culture and unique traditions, Mauritania provides an unforgettable holiday destination. It’s often viewed as a ‘forgotten land’ despite being one of the most fascinating places in Africa.

The capital of Mauritania is Nouakchott, which is also the largest city in the country and where Rocky Road Travel starts our tours.

Discover a tribal country with enchanting landscapes. 

Because Mauritania is mostly a desert country, the Sahara Desert covers much of its territory. During our tours, you’ll get to ride an open top iron ion train through the desert. However, it also has a narrow strip of land along the Atlantic Ocean coast.

The country is a delight for wildlife lovers, being somewhere you can spot everything from gazelles and ostriches to all kinds of birds.

Islam is the predominant religion in Mauritania, with the majority of the population adhering to Sunni Islam. The country is largely dependent on agriculture and fishing, and although it does face many economic challenges, you won’t regret paying a visit.

A country in transition, it has a magical blend of wild Atlantic fisherman mixed with traditional desert nomads of the Sahara. With our 2023 and 2024 tours to Mauritania, you’ll get to experience the best of what this country has to offer.

Traditional practices and customs are an essential part of this country’s culture, including the art of henna tattoos, traditional music, and storytelling. We’ll ensure that you get to immerse yourself in the culture of this fascinating place.
