Niger is a landlocked country in Western Africa, most of it is covered by the Sahara desert. It is bordered by Algeria, Libya, Chad, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso and Mali.


The region close to Mali is not very safe. Read up on safety before you go. Crime rate is high, landmines in some regions, check out carefully before you go.
