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. Plan my day in Mauritania using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
