Although there’s little to do in Rosso (pop. 18 000) the drive from Nouakchott is pleasant passing small villages interesting people and sand-colored rock buildings. Rosso lies on the Senegal River in the fertile southern region where the country’s crops are grown. It's nice to hang around the place where the bac from Senegal arrives. There is always something going on.

Rosso has a large community of black Mauritanians, who actually feel closer to their relatives in Senegal than to the berber/arabs of the North. This gives the town a special feel. Going to Senegal you will surely be passing Rosso, from here it is only about an hours drive to Saint Louis, which has a few nice sights from the colonial period and better possibilities for accommodation.
