Hey guys was looking for helpful answers besides the embassy webpage line that paints "no-go" over just about anywhere with a shred of a risk.
My wife and I are seriously planning to travel to Niger this winter, but not 100% decided on whether to wait or not. You see, all of this fuss bout islamic Maghreb Al-Qaeda and such in the area is very bad for tourist reputation. and a recent indefinite power outage and jailbreak of dangerous criminals from Niamey prison doesnt help our confidence much...
that said, I prefer to make informed and sound decisions on my travel and not give in to hysteria and stereotypes...Can anyone here help us decide whether to come to Niger or not? We merely wish to visit Niamey area and Agadez in the north.
We tend to be easily persuaded to go. Can anyone offer any informed, updated, or any sort of good advice on this? :)
Thanks a million!
