Nouakchott, Mauritania

Nouakchott was tiny fishing town until 1958 and more than 2 milions today.

The most interesting place, Port de Peche, the fishingboats come back in the afternoon. A few hundred meter north is a beach hotel (Hotel Sabah, bungalow 25000) with restaurant (sandwich UM 700, fish UM 3000, December 2011).
Take a shared taxi from the city center, UM 250.
To Senegal take a shared taxi from Garage Rosso about 7 km south of the city center, to Rosso, it will stop about 500 meter from the ferry to Senegal, UM 2500 and about 3 hours. Harbor fee is UM 40, the car ferry is free for foot passengers.
Buses to Nouadhibou are UM 4000 to 4500, and there are also buses to Mali.
If you go with your own car, try to avoid this border, but there are no problems if you are without car.
