Boghé is a city in the extreme south of Mauritania. Located in the Brakna region, it is in close proximity to the Senegal River and thus to the neighboring state of Senegal. The road to Boghé is a paved branch of the Route de l'Espoir. From Aleg, it takes a little more than an hour. The city of 50,000 inhabitants is growing rapidly. Like the town of Kaédi, 100 km to the northwest, Boghé is inhabited almost exclusively by the Pulaar, who belong to the Soudans. Culturally and linguistically, there is practically no difference between Boghé and life on the other side of the river - the Pulaar are concentrated along an elongated strip on this side and the other side of the Senegal River. Here, black African culture dominates; Moorish influences are hardly noticeable. Subsistence farming overweights: fishing, livestock breeding and the cultivation of various crops such as millet, cassava, sugar cane and rice. Boghé, with its thatched round huts, is certainly not a top tourist destination like Oualata, but like Kaédi or Sélibaby, it provides an insight into a completely different Mauritania. It is worth the trip for that alone. The place is not embedded in any of our planned southern routes, but on request we can design a tour for you that will bring you closer to the beauties of the extreme south.
