Mauritania group adventure 2023!
Adventure with us through one of the least visited, and most remote destinations worldwide - Mauritania! Together with a group of like-minded adventurers, all with one and the same mission: to authentically explore a new country, and experience something as crazy as hitchhiking on a cargo train through the Sahara desert, all while making lifelong connections through this group.
Our trip is open for participants of all ages and gender, that are adventurers at heart. Join today before spots run out.
🗺 What's the itinerary?
To transmit the feeling of adventure and spontaneity, we keep our itinerary secret and reveal our plans the day before, because we love to give good surprises. We believe good travel is about taking you on a ride instead of ticking off a list.
But don't worry, our trip will include all the best tat Mauritania has to offer, such as the camping on the highest sand dunes of Mauritania under a starry sky (I planned these dates to align with new moon, so the stars will be at their brightest!), a refreshing dip at the Terjit Oasis, visiting the old library of Chinguetti with ancient scrips, visiting the historical town of Ouadane (UNESCO world heritage site), hitchhiking on the worlds longest train through the Sahara, starting in Zouerat, where the iron is mined, all the way to the Atlantic coast, where we will be visiting ship wrecks in Nouadhibou, and more... But the rest is a surprise ;) See you there!
✈️ What flights should I look for?
Flying in & out of Nouakchott intl. Airport (NKC).
Arrival: we start our adventure early in the morning (around 7am) on the starting day (outlined above), so it's best to arrive a day or two early to settle in and meet everyone! One extra hotel night is on us :) check in would start at 12pm.
Departure: on the last day of the tour anytime. Hotel check out at 12pm.
🧳 Do I need to pack any camping equipment?
All camping equipment will be provided to you from us, so you won't have to bring anything. The only item that's out of the ordinary that you'll have to pack, are ski goggles for the train ride ... we'll explain. A detailed packing list with clothing recommendation will be sent into the group chat, where you can e-meet and connect with the group before the start of the trip!
