MAURITANIA

Between ocean and desert

We will sail with Imraguen fishermen among sandy islets inhabited by endless colonies of birds.

    Crossed by the trans-Saharan trade routes during the great epic of the caravan routes, Mauritania is in fact home to some of the most important Saharan oases, mythical villages that have experienced centuries of economic prosperity and have been important cultural and religious propulsion points

    We will discover the isolated and mythical Chinguetti, perhaps the last true Saharan oasis with its characteristic clay dwellings, half-submerged by the pinkish dunes of the advancing desert and where the ancient manuscripts of Islamic libraries are found. Nowadays decaying and almost buried by the sand, Cinguetti, Ouadane, remain magical names, evocative of a glorious Saharan past, they retain their splendor: the contrast between their smallness and the boundless decorum that surrounds them.
