Discover Mauritania

Salām

Welcome to your first step towards Mauritania. Far away from mass tourism and fake exoticism, this country on West Africa's Atlantic coast still offers a destination worth discovering. The Bilad Shinqit, as it is also called in some places, surprises above all by its versatility. Between modern metropolises such as Nouakchott and Nouadhibou, historical sites such as Chinguetti and Oualata, or breathtaking natural scenery such as Terjit or Banc d'Arguin: on more than 1 million km², Mauritania reveals both natural beauty and enough space for its diverse cultures in the past and present.

In recent years, the country has become an insider tip for couchsurfers and individual travelers. And rightly so: after all, many of the sights between Algeria and Senegal have now become UNESCO cultural and natural heritage sites. Whether camel tour, desertiftar or a ride on (!) one of the longest trains in the world: Mauritania makes explorers' hearts beat faster.

ChingiTours is at your side as a partner like no other, because: We have the local know-how and at the same time focus on reliability and the complete satisfaction of our travelers. At the same time, we are aware of our local responsibility and support various non-profit local projects with our earnings.

Discover the fascinating Mauritania. It is worth it.
