Is Mauritania a travel destination? Yes, now it is. Mauritania portrays in its pallet a canvas of the natural beauty of a Sub-Saharan West African destination in contrast with a superb geographical setting between Morocco and Senegal. Mauritania is a spectrum of diverse landscapes unique to the Sahara Desert, with endless natural beaches plunging into the Atlantic Ocean. Suppose 90% of Mauritania’s land is absolute wilderness Sahara landscapes. In that case, it is heaven for desert explorers and overland adventurers, rare to compare to any other Sub-Saharan country in Africa, the Sahel Region known for its rugged sub-Saharan terrain. Here is a very challenging destination for the active traveler and overland explorers. We have handpicked the best Mauritania adventure overland tours and expeditions for small groups and private experiences priced within all budgets to attract more active travelers to discover the magic of Mauritania. Adventure Tours to Mauritania, including our sustainable goodwill tours, are all small group tours. As of 2019, Mauritania consists of a population of approximately 4.4 million. The local population is composed of three main ethnicities: Bidhan or simply the Moors representing the bulk of the people speaking predominantly Hassani, which is Arabic and Berber with roots from the northern border. The Haratins are a minority that migrated through the ages from West Africa and speaks different dialects, such as Halpulaar, Soninke, Bambara, and Wolof. Sarah Tours is the leader of cultural and adventure tours to Africa designed to sustain communities in remote areas who need help and survival.
We have been designing overland adventure tours to Africa for decades, helping sustain local communities to develop without losing their natural and traditional ways of living in their environment, keeping traditions inherited from their ancestors authentically alive. We have consistently supplied sustainable expeditions and goodwill tours to Africa since 1994. Today, due to the natural, social, and economic needs to help each other around the globe as humanity is in significant demand to go back to its natural duties and values to co-exist responsibly, to share and to help people in need, we have created for the first time, Cultural, AGRICULTURE and GOODWILL TOURS to Africa, to allow travelers to travel to Africa with a purpose. Initially, to travel, share, help, to sustain, and preserve ancestral cultures and their environment intact. We all have something to offer to each other anywhere on the globe. We all have an obligation to share not only material but knowledge, substance, and values; a kind word; and advice could make an essential change in someone’s life; a pencil can help a child to write, draw and develop their skills, a T-shirt can make you a relative to someone who will never forget you as uncle John or Aunt Sue. A tree of goodwill and friendship you may plant today somewhere will sustain human and natural life in its environment for years to come. In fact, by being there on any of our Mauritania overland tours, you have significantly contributed to sustaining life in Africa, the most vital and rewarding continent to all creatures. So, check our sustainable programs of treks and expeditions to Africa in a human aspect and also environmentally oriented. We have reserved for you, of course, to travel with a purpose, to become a world citizen, a world traveler who makes a difference in others’ lives, and to contribute to people and nature in Mauritania and elsewhere in Africa. Welcome to our New World Order of sustainable and goodwill travel to Africa, your world to share and sustain. Join our Mauritania group tours or call on us to personalize a special private customized tour just for you, your friends, and your family. Support our travel for food Mauritania sustainable agriculture programs.

Sarah Tours will take you where it is all happening instead of making encounters happen for you on all our African culture and adventure overland tours. Welcome to Sarah Tours’ active, ecological, and environmental treks and expeditions.Customize My Trip
