Mauritania officially the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, is a country in the Maghreb region of western North Africa. It is the eleventh largest country in Africa, and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the west, by Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara in the north, by Algeria in the northeast, by Mali in the east and southeast, and by Senegal in the southwest.

Self driving in in certain parts of Mauritania is dangerous for Westerners and you should check the Home Country before thinking of  Booking a Self drive Vacation in Mauritania as their is a risk of kidnapping on the road and you shouldn’t contemplate driving this in a self drive care.

its not Safe for Driving because of the Roadway obstructions and hazards caused by drifting sand, animals, and poor roads are common. These hazards, when combined with the number of untrained drivers , poorly maintained vehicles, and the wider security risk can many Mauritanians drive without regard to traffic signs or rules.

So at 4×4 Drive Africa we advise not to risk taking a Self drive Safari in this State.
