Best time to fly over

The best time to visit Mauritania basically depends on what tourists would want to do. For those who want to visit as many tourist attractions as they can, the months of March to May are the best because of the pleasant travel conditions. On the other hand, they should refrain from flying over from July to September because these months mark the rainy season and it would be a bit challenging to sightsee during this time of the year.
