What not to do when visiting Niger

Don’t forget to shake hands in combination with a touching of the right hand over the heart when greeting (men). Men and women usually greet verbally or with a nod of acknowledgement. It’s a taboo for Muslim men to touch women and vice-versa.

Don't wear expensive clothes or jewellery, don’t show off with money at the public - you’re risking to be a target of pickpockets or kidnappers. Keep a low profile and exercise increased caution at all time.
