1-is food available in Mouritania?
2-is not necessary to take the map of mouritania as we are taking the costal road, that is the asphalt one.?
3-where can we get the visas for senegal ?
Tomorrow, we will be in Ramlia and exactly in Aghbalou Ramlia camp.
Hope we can some of you travllers on the road somewhere in the sahara desert , Mouritania or senegal.

The road from NBD to NKT is tarred .. should take about 5hrs.

Senegalese visas, get them in NKT but not sure what the requirements will be for non-Europeans.

Food is available in Mauritania; stock up in NBD ... especially with water

non europeans do have to get a visa 4 senegal. do it in NDB but beware that on fridays the office might be closed and then u have to wait till next monday.
NDB to NKT is 475 km and is brand new tar. There is now a brand new station, very well furnished and with a good restaurant too, halfway to NKT. Beware of the heat!!! NDB is very cool and might fool you into thinking that you'll have an easy ride into NKT, you won't! after 100km the road turns into a damn furnace. leave extra early if you can.

take care

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
