Public transportation in Mauritania

Hi all,

What do you think about the means of transportation in Mauritania ?

Is the network of means of transportation well developed? What modes of transport are available?

Do you use them?

How much is a fare?

Are they relatively safe?

What is the mean of transportation you use the most in Mauritania?

Thanks in advance for participating!


Public transportation in Nouakchott are taxi, bus, donkey chart, what else??. I dont really used it since my company provides me with company's car + driver.

Hi zambrut!

Thanks for your help! It is much appreciated ;)


Well, if i were to drive on my own, i will sure opt for 4 wheel drive since the road condition are not really good and you may need to go offroad (sand) for shortcut + safety (4WD supposed to be harder & tougher i guess). The road here is really small so hardly u can drive very fast.
