About Mauritania and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Mauritania.
Near the Atlantic Ocean, on the border with Algeria, lies the state of Mauritania in western Africa. Most of the territory is occupied by vast deserts, national parks, and exciting museums. The region’s climate is a hot tropical desert, and the temperature does not drop below 30 degrees in the summer.
Mauritania attracts many vacationers and is an excellent tourist destination for lovers of history and antiquity. Visitors can get acquainted with the way of life of the Bedouin and friendly locals, as well as learn the history of the region. The symbol of the country has become carpets with unusual patterns, which are handmade by local craftsmen. Besides, local cuisine surprises tourists with mysterious traditions. Seafood, dates, vegetables, and fruits in special marinades are the basis of dishes. Start the journey through the country in the capital, Nouakchott, which is considered the best choice for beach holidays and water sports. In the southwest is the Great Mosque, with its graceful minarets and complex history.
Also worth a visit is the National Museum, which keeps a considerable number of artifacts about the development and formation of Mauritania. For history buffs, the Qumbi Saleh, with its extensive restoration of the ancient city of the Ghanaian Empire, with its military, religious and domestic buildings, is a real eye-opener. Mauritania is a unique tourist destination, where the traditional and old-fashioned way of life prevails; the population leads a nomadic lifestyle, just like their ancestors centuries ago.
