I want to travel from Morocco overland to The Gambia in June/July time, obviously this means travel through Mauritania. I'm a 23 year of British female and would be travelling alone between these two places. I have travelled alone in Ethiopia, Mozambique and Morocco before so it's not new to me but none of these countries had heightened security warnings at the time. Does anybody know what the situation is currently in Mauritania? How realistic is this journey? If the situation is particularly bad then I'm not interested in making stops, just getting from border to border so I can continue on till I meet my friend. Is this likely to be possible?
Many thanks for any help.
