i will be travelling to morocco in april and would very much like to spend some time in mauritania and perhaps senegal. as i would intend to cross the border from morocco i am wondering what the current political climate is like in the western sahara region. is it considered safe to go there? what security issues should i take into consideration when travelling to this region ? also, what public transport exists, if any, to make such a journey from morocco to mauritania? and if anyone has any knowledge of mauritania or senegal, how easy is it to travel across land from mauritania to senegal? would it be considered safe?
any replies will be very much appreciated.
