Those who wish to travel to Niger will discover the Aïr Mountains
and the sand of Ténéré, a south central region of the Sahara desert. An ethnically transitional country between Sahara and Black Africa, this country can be discovered in the company of Tuaregs and their dromedaries or in a 4x4 (which is becoming more and more frequent). In Niamey, on the banks of the Niger River you can enjoy pirogue (a type of flat bottomed boat) rides. The Sahelian bush gives an early taste of the landscapes of Black Africa. You will see the beautiful and colourful villages and lively markets - an excellent opportunity to discover the melting pot of different ethnicities.
