I think we got our visa at the Border post, or down the road in noudibou.

Same goes for Insurance etc..

Hi

I'm thinking of going to Mauritania through Morocco. Did you manage to get your visa at the border? If so can you give me some details.

Thanks

Thank you. This is the first bit of good news I've had. Do you happen to know anything about visas for Mali?

My trips end at The Gambia..

If you checkout Saharaoverland and The Hubb they have a load of info doing Sahara crossings, even to Timbuctoo, think thats how you spell it..

Just went into Hubb.. For Visa's.

For routes and stories of other travellers etc., also shortcut to HUBB on Forums..

Thanks Ric

Im now in Tiznet, south of Agadir, without a yellow fever certificate. This is not the most prepared of trips. Do you happen to know if I will be able to get it along the way?

Thanks again for all your help.

Ouch..!

I get my Yellow fever in UK, think it lasts 10 Years.

I'm not sure which Countries require it, Appart from Gambia, who do require it, but only if you come in via Senegal.

Flying in from UK, not needed.

Local Doc or Health Centre would be best bet I would imagine.

Sorry can't be of more Help on this one..

Contacted the health authority here in Tiznit and they told me the only place to get it was back in Casablanca, at the Pasture Institute; Did that two days ago. Tomorrow head on South.

Thanks
