The camel market outside Nouakchott, it's like visiting another planet. Here you see a man wearing a blue Boubou and white Turban, a very typical way of dressing all across Mauritania. #nouakchott #exploremauritania #mauritania #mauritanie #camelmarket #camel #boubou #traditional #tueban #desert #sahara #sahel #hot #sun #africa #westafricatravellers #westafrica #afrique #globetrotter #solotravel #everycountry #adventure #travel #adventuretravel #everydayafrica #visitmauritania #portrait #blue #wanderlust #picoftheday at Nouakchott

Thousands of fibreglass boats clogged Nouadhibou harbour at the end of octopus season. The maximum allowable catch is 25k tons according to the government, but that year the catch was 38k tons, with the overage from small motorised pirogues like these. Mauritania has one of the richest fisheries remaining in west Africa, and most of it caught for export, like octopus for Japanese market. #akjoujt #atar #inchiri #adrar #mauritania #discovermauritania #mauritaniantrip #mauritanian_trip #travel #travelling #wanderlust #wandering #desert #sahara #great_sahara #thegreatsahara #westafrica #west_africa #africa #beauty #desertbeauty #caravan #rain #sand #dunes #sanddunes #caravan #exploremauritania #oasis #chinguetti #local at Nouâdhibou

The main keeper of an ancient library in Chinguetti, Mauritania, opens a wooden door using an ingenious system that can best be described as a wooden padlock. It features a toothbrush-like key that slides into a wooden housing, which then miracously releases a wooden crossbar. There isn't a lot of info I can find about this system, but I have found similar wooden locks in Central Mali, which indicates it is common across the Sahel. #mauritania #exploremauritania #mauritanie #chinguetti #library #travelTuesday #travel #solotravel #sahel #sahara #ancient #unesco #unescoheritage #history #padlock #adventure #wanderlust #wood #door #africa #westafricatravellers #everycountry #everydayafrica #closeup #canon #natgeo #lp at Chinguetti

You can't come to Mauritania and not ride the ore iron train accross the sahara from Choum to Nouadhibou. They have a passenger cart at the back of the train but it will be more fun to ride on one of the Iron ore wagons (for free) and have it penetrate every orifice you could imagine. The train comes anywhere from 3pm-9pm so you have to sit by the tracks and just wait. It is not an unbearable adventure if you come prepared. If it's not on your bucket list, it should be. Hands down top travel experience. #inchiri #mauritania #discovermauritania #mauritaniantrip #mauritanian_trip #travel #travelling #wanderlust #wandering #desert #sahara #great_sahara #thegreatsahara #westafrica #west_africa #africa #beauty #desertbeauty #orange #caravan #rain #sand #dunes #sanddunes #caravan #exploremauritania #oasis #chinguetti #train #snim #choum at Choûm, Adrar, Mauritania

Falling in love with the desert and its barsh environment doesn't mean living with it for eternity, at least nowadays, but it means visiting it every now and then to enjoy that silent, to enjoy the songs of the sand dunes and the wind, to see where have you been once. #akjoujt #atar #inchiri #adrar #mauritania #discovermauritania #mauritaniantrip #mauritanian_trip #travel #travelling #wanderlust #wandering #desert #sahara #great_sahara #thegreatsahara #westafrica #west_africa #africa #beauty #desertbeauty #orange #caravan #rain #sand #dunes #sanddunes #caravan #exploremauritania #discovermauritania at Mauritania

I don't see the desert as barren at all; I see it as full and ripe. It doesn't need to be flattered with rain. It certainly needs rain, but it does with what it has, and creates amazing beauty. #akjoujt #atar #inchiri #adrar #mauritania #discovermauritania #mauritaniantrip #mauritanian_trip #travel #travelling #wanderlust #wandering #desert #sahara #great_sahara #thegreatsahara #westafrica #west_africa #africa #beauty #desertbeauty #orange #caravan #rain #sand #dunes #sanddunes #exploremauritania at Mauritania
