More likely flights to Nouakchott are disappearing fast than filling fast. Not much demand to get in to Mauritania. With most of its embassies shut down you fly in and hope they let you in.

That’s not all. Expedia trumpets, “There’s So Much to Do in Nouakchott.” One guess how many things they found!
