Safety in Mauritania
My partner and I are travelling overland in our truck in Western sahara and plan to head down into Mauritania.
I don't feel very safe about travelling down there. Are there any women out there who can tell me if they have travelled overland with or without a man and what it's like?
Whats it really feel like? Did you feel or experience any threats?
Are the police as corrupt as we hear? Is there danger of kidnappings or robberies?
I come from Australia, have done lots of overland travelling but I reckon I'd rather be travelling thru our own awesome desert in oz than have to endure bastards with guns or anyone that will threaten my safety. Any feedback would be gratefully appreciated.
