What are some fun things to do while in Niger?
I am scheduled to travel to Niger in September with a British company to see this festival. I am a bit put off by the US State Dept. warnings about travel to Niger. Just wondering if anyone has ever done this trip? I have wanted to see this for at least 10 years.
How can I learn the Tuareg language spoken in Niger?
Applying for visa to Niger it says that round-trip ticket must have been purchased at a travel agentcy. Is this mandatory?
I will be heading to Niger in about 2 weeks. I am so clueless about this country and would appreciate any tips or advices on traveling there ... where to go, how to transport and sleep for cheap,etc...
This is just a shot in the dark, but please if anyone here on VT has been to the Touareg Festival in Iferouane which normally takes place at the end of December, please let me know.
I guess my real question is whether or not I can do this thing with 2500 euros for me and my daughter for two weeks (this budget is for airfare (from Paris direct to Agadez - we only have two weeks and can't do Niamey + bus), lodging and ground transporation in Niger - food, souvenirs, and tips not included). We'd like to leave from Paris on or about the 22 December and return on the 6 January (school vacations). We're not picky and don't require luxury accomadations, all we want is to share in the experience and have some fun.
Thanks for any help,
Later this year i will be travelling from Mali to Niger and then onward to Algeria. As a Dutch EU citizen i need a visa for Niger. I read somewhere that a visa can be get at the Mali/Niger border depending on the goodwill of the custom employee. Anybody can fill me in on that and/or what is the next best option.
Is there any one doing a tour to the Air mountains and/or Tenere dessert from Agadez starting on the 13th, 14th or 15th of October?
I arrive in Niamey by plane on 11th of October and I will leave on the 2nd of November so I have some time to see the landscape in the North.
