So far I found only 500,00 euro flights in skyscanner engine, which seems to me too expensive for this travel.
I was also considering to travel by bus/train(until the Morocco-West Sahara border) but it would probably take 2-3 days.
Thanks a lot

1Flying in Africa is expensive
There are few regional lo-costs in W.Africa, most of them in Ghana who don't fly to Morocco; I'm afraid your choices between Morocco (Casa) & Dakar are limited to Royal Air Maroc & possibly Senegal Airlines who may have now started this route, although I'd fly RAM over SA!

3Thanks a lot Kira and Dave for your tips.
Do you have any info about price of Bus travelling from Casa and Dakar?

4I suggest you look on threads in Morocco & Mauritania
I would think to get to Dahkla is now in the region of 800Dh+ from Casablanca; another 300Dh+ to NBD, then probably the same again to get into Senegal. So somewhere in the region of 200euros including a bed for the few nights you'll need one. Don't forget the visa for Mauritania in Rabat (another cost to consider)

6I don't know if you are looking for a one-way ticket or a return one but if you need to return to Morocco and you plan to make it overland, be aware you'll need a double entry visa for Mauritania.
BTW, if you are looking for a one-way ticket you should be able to find a ticket less expensive than 500 Euros; which makes me think you are looking for a return ticket.

7No, don't think double entry visas are possible for Mauri, the OP will need to re-apply in Dakar

The OP could ask about it in the embassy where he applies. The form to request a visa available in the web of the embassy of Mauritania in Spain asks you to tell the number of entries you want (one, two or multiple). I don't know if more than one would mean (or would be only possible if requesting) a long term visa and/or if it would mean more requirements/paperwork or if it would be easier and/or cheaper to get two different single entry visas but it wouldn't hurt to ask. Sadly, I can't provide first-hand experience/info.
