How to travel through Mauritania with your car Mar 18, 2011
I write this because I believe that there is unwarranted bad press about Mauritania.

There have been incidents and police is doing all they can to cater to tourists and make them safe. The country is in love with roadblocks: the gendarmerie asks you where you go to and where you come from. This is then relayed. I never felt unsafe during my trip. One caveat: 'guides' try to rip you off at the border crossings, you do not need them. Principal roads are tarmac these days, do NOT venture on pistes with sandy areas with your car if you are not thoroughly prepared. They can get really difficult.
