Your trip includes some of its best attractions: take a leisurely stroll along Port de Peche, take a stroll around Centre culturel francais St Exupery, buy something for everyone on your list at Al Khaima Mall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ibn Abbas Mosque.

Vast, sparse, and unexplored by international visitors, Mauritania consists mainly of desert landscapes. In the north, the desert breaks into rocky massifs, hiding a collection of World Heritage-listed caravan towns, highlights of many adventurous Mauritania itineraries. Much of the country's Atlantic coast has been protected as part of a national park, and its wealth of migratory birds make holidays in Mauritania particularly popular with nature lovers.
