Safety? Road Dakhla-Nouakchott and further to Bamako.
Hello. We are 2 male Belgians now in Essaouira, Maroc, and planning to drive down with our Mitshubishi Jeep to Nouakchott in one weeks time. And then continue along the Senegal border to Kayes and further to Bamako (or to Kiffa and then down to Kayes)
We read on several official sites (e.g.Belgian Diplomatie site) that Mauretanie is disadvised. Especially the eastern part, but also the route Nouadhibou-Nouakchott would be disadviced. Also some friends here in Maroc don't like the idea that much of heading down.
Does anyone has (very) recent first-hand info about the safety on this traject and has done this traject?
Ps: For the moment there is a big congres about terrorism held in Nouakchott.
Thanks very much in advance for all helpfull information!
