I plan on traveling with a friend this Sept. & October to Mauritania. I am American, he was born in Mauritania. We are going back to visit his family. We plan on flying directly in/out of Nouakchott. Once in NKC we will be driving to the city of Rosso. Plan to stay about 12-14 days.
My main concern is my safety upon arrival. There are currently no travel warnings, but there are some US Gov. issued travel alerts....which are making me a little nervous. Looking for some feedback from any Americans that have traveled there recently.
I would GREATLY appreciate your feedback!! I feel safe traveling with a Mauritanian citizen, but still am a bit unsure of how I'll be treated by other locals.
