I intend to drive from Nouakchott to Bamako next January. Previously the Mali visa could be obtained at the border, but that is no longer the case, so I am goint to have to get my visa in advance.
I believe that there is a Mali Embassy in Nouakchott. Has anybody got a visa from there? How long did it take and how much does it cost? (I have a UK passport)
I could get one in London before I leave, but at 195 pounds, I am sure it must be cheaper in Africa.
Another option would be to get one in…
Yes I know it isnt big but since we will bring a baby we would prefer the best location on the island. What beach on the west coast is the nicest one (except d'argent)? Is the "center" on the island La Passe? When I look for cheap guest houses most of them are around Anse Severe. Is that kind of off?
I'm a single woman hoping to travel by boat from Kinshasa to Mbandaka or Kisangani and back, this July. Does anybody have any experience with this route? In particular, I'm wondering if anybody knows the schedule for the newly-relaunched passenger boat ITB Kokolo? Or knows of any other groups (NGO or otherwise) making the trip? Advice welcome. Thanks so much!
I'm planning a visit to Togo in July. Date is relatively fixed since travel is an extension of visit to a sponsored child and NGO says July is the month (he's home then from a boarding school; graduates from program in Nov so has to be this year). I know that's just after the peak rainy season. I'm thinking of visiting Parc Sarakawa and the area around Kpaline. Thoughts? What are the roads and mosquitos like in July? I understand the roads can be impassible during the rainy season and…
Female/Brazilian here. I'll be in Maputo for work in mid-May and plan to explore Mozambique between Tuesday-Saturday (evening flight from Maputo on Sunday).
My question is... what should I definitely see and what do I have time for?
I'd love to go for a dhow safari around Bazaruto Archipelagos, some diving, and I've ready good things about hanging out in Tofo. I'm not looking for lots of things to do - I would like to relax, but would take advantage for some fantastic diving (or…
Hi guys, im Felipe from Colombia (Latin America) traveling around the world.
This time i want to visit Mauritania in july 2016, i would love if anyone who had visited Mauritania before can give me pice of advice about where to stay, what to visit, what to eat etc. I wanna spend there 1 or 2 weeks.
I'm American. I've read the warnings that Americans are required to get a visa in advance for Mozambique because there is an embassy in Washington, DC. I live very far from Washington, DC, and it would cost me $160 visa fee plus $79 visa agent fee plus $50 for fedex shipping to and from to the agent, so let's call it $300.
I would plan on entering from Swaziland. This blog entry is by an American who got a visa at the border in 2015, with no questions asked:
We are two guys from India who are traveling around Madagascar from June 9th to 20th. We are planning to visit some of the national parks, Tsingy, Ranomafana, Isalo etc...but we are open to exploring other places too. We are looking for other budget travellers who are in the country at the same time to split costs of car, driver, fuel etc..
