I plan to drive my Seat from Ghent to Nouadhibou and to sell it there. Timing will be the first two weeks of January. I'm preparing, and in search of practical information. 1. Anybody knows where I can find information on convoys, going that direction? 2. Is it possible to come back by boat, or do I have to fly? Nouakchott is feasible, but I like boat trips. 3. How safe is the N1 road from Tanger to Nouadhibou? Seems like quite okay on the comments I read so far, but many date from several years ago. 4. Is the Iron Ore train still feasible? I'd love to go to Chinguetti, and from there to Choum, after having sold the car.

And last point: anyone with some technical skills interested to join me on this road trip? Might be helpful, Mauritania is not that keen on single women.

  • Probably not a good idea. Western Sahara is disputed territory. See travel.gc.ca/destinations/morocco and gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/western-sahara . It's also a grueling 50 hours of raw driving (and lots of gas) So unless you think you can get a HUGE amount of money for your Seat, it's hardly worth it – Hilmar Oct 9 '18 at 13:46
  • Requests for travel partners are certainly off-topic, here. – David Richerby Oct 9 '18 at 13:57
  • If you use the "Contact" link at the bottom of the page, you can get the site admins to merge your "ChrisM" and "Chris Monten" accounts, so you'll be able to directly edit your question (rather than submit edit suggestions that might get declined) and also post comments under it and under any answers. – David Richerby Oct 9 '18 at 13:58
