Niamey Travel Guide
Niamey is the capital and largest city of the West African country of Niger. Niamey lies on the Niger River, primarily situated on the east bank. The city is located in a pearl millet growing region, while manufacturing industries include bricks, ceramic goods, cement and weaving. It is the administrative, cultural and economic centre of the country and hence generally offers good facilities for travellers, both budget and upmarket. Niamey offers unique open-air markets that are great for people watching—they’re patronized by members of the Tuareg Sonuri and Fulani tribes, as well as wrestling, one of the finest museums in Africa and the massive Grand Mosque.
The official tourist office is located on the west side Ave du Président Henry Luebke just north of Place de la Fraternité on the same block as the Direction de la Surveillance du Territoire (visa extensions). Be sure, also, to check out the Niger Ministry of Tourisme website (in French), which lists local tour operators. InfosNiger.com (also in French) has a list of Niamey tour operators and the embassy of Niger in Canada has some good tourism info.
When to visit Niamey
Niamey has a hot and generally dry desert climate with a short rainy season from June to September when there can be severe thunderstorms with occasional flooding. Rains can be unpredictable though and sometimes the rainy season means just a few showers now and then.
As with much of West Africa, poor infrastructure leads to frequent flooding and miserable roads during the wet season, so it is best to avoid travel to Niamey from June-September (especially if travelling to nearby countries which receive even more rain).
Average annual rainfall is around 550mm. The coolest and driest (and arguably best) weather of the year is between December and January with averages of 34/15 (93/57F) and no rainfall. In October, November and February the weather is hotter and still dry with 38°C (100°F) in the afternoon and 18-23°C (64-73°F) at night. March to May are the hottest months of the year topping out at 42°C (108°F) in the afternoon (although 45°C/114°F temps aren’t uncommon) and a warm 25°C (77°F) at night; all three months can see just a few showers.
