Sélibaby is the capital of Mauritania's Guidimaka Region in the south of the country. The Guidimaka Region is known for being the wettest in Mauritania, due to its location near the West African Monsoon. This means it receives more rain than other parts of the country, making it greener and more suited to agriculture. The city itself is divided into several neighborhoods. If you're interested in Mauritanian culture, you can visit the marketplace to browse local crafts and produce. There are also historical sites you can visit to learn more about the region's past. The best time to visit Sélibaby is during the cooler, drier months, which fall from November to February. Temperatures are mild and there's less chance of rain interrupting your exploration.
