About Niger

Niger is one of those countries that isn’t very well known internationally.  When it does gain exposure, it always seems to be for the wrong reasons: coups, famines, rebels and insecurity.  The travellers who have ventured into this desert filled country normally report stories of warm and welcoming people, not to mention multi talented too.  Think beautiful silver jewellery, colourful textiles, bronze statues and patchwork handbags.  Check with your government regarding the current security situation in Niger before making travel plans.
