Been moping around a bit in the aftermath of the theft of over $1000 from my bags in Casablanca. Did head out to the camel market today though. Sandals were a bad idea. 🇲🇷 • • • • • #mauritania #mauritanie #visitmauritania #sahel #westafrica #sahara #saharadesert #camel #camelsofinstagram #camelmarket #livestock #offthebeatenpath #offthebeatentrack #traveldeeper #travelstoke #traveltheworld #cntraveler #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravelpic #travelblogger at Nouakchott

Visiting the camel market outside Nouakchott, where you will find hundreds of camels for sale. It's a hot, dusty yet mesmerising spot not many foreigners actually visit. But perhaps it's the people that are the main reason to go there. I spent an hour with them laying in a tent escaping the hottest moment of the day, drinking tea, while others were chatting over potential deals. If I remember correctly a camel sells at anything above 500 euro, so it's a serious business! Unluckily I still suffered a heatstroke that day because I was so eager to take pictures out in the sun. Mauritania can be pretty rough at times! #mauritania #africa #nouakchott #westafrica #camelmarket #market #exploremauritania #travel #igtravel #solotravel #adventure #everycountry #beard #sand #dust #afrique #mauritanie #mercedes #visitmauritania #portrait #souk at Nouakchott, Mauritania

The fish market outside Nouakchott in Mauritania is a spectacular place. Hundreds of boats set out each day to the rich waters of West Africa, most of them coming back at the end of the afternoon. I spent 3 days by myself photographing the hustle and bustle. Not always easy since some people do not appreciate it, but you just focus on the ones that don't mind. There are nice people everywhere you go. Here I captured the return of a few fishermen, arriving to a quiet beach as most boats had already returned. A surreal scene with magic light. Definitely a place I loved to be. #mauritania #portdepeche #fishmarket #westafricatravellers #westafrica #africa #travel #tourism #visitmauritania #sunset #85mm #boat #harbour #fishing #mauritanie #afrika #nouakchott #adventure #beach #sea #ocean #yellow #igtravel #passionpassport #solotravel #everycountry at Nouakchott, Mauritania

Chinguetti is a ksar or a Berber medieval trading center in northern Mauritania, located on the Adrar Plateau east of Atar. 🇲🇷 Founded in the 13th century as the center of several trans-Saharan trade routes, this small city continues to attract a handful of visitors who admire its spare architecture, scenery and ancient libraries. The city is seriously threatened by the encroaching desert; high sand dunes mark the western boundary and several houses have been abandoned to the sand. 💛 Picture By: @joaocbsousa Follow us on: @mauritaniahotels Tag ur friends 👇 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #simplymauritania #shareyourmauritania #chinguetti #🇲🇷 #chinguetty #mauritaniandesert #adrarregion #travels #travel #travelling #travelblogger #travelpohotography #photographer #photography #photographylovers #visit #visiting #visitmauritania #frommauritania #discovering #formauritania #inmauritania #mauritania #mauritanialives at Chinguetti
