Home to the world's longest trains, Mauritania can further offer some of the most dramatic landscapes of any African country. Its epic sand dunes, green oases and Africa's largest monolith attract tourists and expats alike. Many expats move to Mauritania to work for foreign embassies based in the country — most of which are found in the capital Nouakchott — or to teach English. Depending on your lifestyle, life can be a little expensive in the country, but many expats earn enough to sustain a good life in Mauritania.
