Border crossing Bogue & Kaedi
Does anybody know how is the border crossing from Senegal to Mauri (and reverse) at Bogue and Kaedi ? I' ve seen some photos with rafts big enough for a mercedes van at Bogue. We try to avoid Diama and Rosso, any info will help

I crossed with my motorcycle in a pirogue at Bogue from Mauritania to Senegal in Dec 2006. At the time we didn't see any pirogues large enough for a car or 4x4. It may have changed since but I wouldn't bet on it!

There was a police hut on the Mauri side to stamp you out, but there was nothing on the Senegalese side to stamp you in.

I found on an approaching landing map and on an IGN mauritania printed last year a bridge from Kaedi into Senegal. Can anyone confirm that?

Yes, does anybody know a way to cross between Mauretania and eastern Senegal with a 4x4?

Happy travels!

We asked around in Bogue and Kaedi, and even went down to the river where the chinese are working on a goudron west of Kaedi, but no bridges and no ferryboat although the river was small
