Mauritania Sahara, Boutilimit

See the sands of the largest desert on the planet at Mauritania Sahara. Covering one-fourth of African soil, the desert houses many different species of reptiles and arachnids alongside human communities.

Sunrise and sunset both offer their own takes of the sandy landscape; bring plenty of water and sun protection.

  • I spent a week in Mauritania for a hiking trip in the desert and I loved it. Beautiful and varied landscapes, absolute silence, wonderful stars, no tourist besides our small group. A total detachment! The trip was organized by the agency French Atalant and I was very satisfied. Excellent organization, very good guide, kind the cameleers and the cook
