Join us as we visit Mauritania, a land of desert and sand dunes. We will be offering two different versions to this tour; one only for the brave as we travel across the country on top of the famous Iron Ore train!

error_outline Security Warning

Please note that although we only run tours to areas we feel we can keep our clients safe, the British FCO advises against all travel to parts of Mauritania that we will visit and all but essential travel to the other areas we travel to.

We research the security of our destinations highly and safety is a priority for us, however, we advise you to do your own research as well to ensure you are comfortable with your trip.

Please note these travel warnings may also affect travel insurance for these regions, please contact us for advice on this.

We run this tour twice a year. One tour with the iron ore train with limited numbers and another tour without the train, replaced by camping.

Both Mauritania and Western Sahara have visa on arrival for most nationalities.

Please note the iron ore train does not run to a schedule so a lot of waiting can be required for the trains arrival.

Our tours are priced at £1,355 for the standard tour and £1,575 for the iron ore tour. Rooms are on a twin basis.

Single supplement for this tour is to be confirmed.

Deposit for this tour is priced at £450.
