Southwestern Niger is the western and southernmost region of Niger, spanning the Tillabére and Dosso provinces as well as the nation's capital on the Niger River.



  • Ayorou — an important market town on a picturesque section of the Niger River.
  • Dosso — at the junction of the roads to Benin and Zinder, this small town has a colorful market and an even more colorful chief's palace.
  • Niamey — the laid back national capital.

Other destinations[edit]

  • Belayara — a market town home to one of West Africa's largest animal markets.
  • Koure — home to the last herd of giraffes.
  • W National Park — one of the Sahel's most important nature reserves and a popular tourist destination, straddling the border with Burkina Faso and Benin.
