"Harmattan Winds" Top 5 Page for this destination Africa Favorite Tip by Wafro

Africa General: 199 reviews and 348 photos

Favorite thing: Harmattan means "North Wind" in Hausa.
Cool, dry winds which originate in the Sahara and blow throughout much of West Africa during the dry season(November->March).
They bring with them dust from the Sahara and make the air hazy and unclear.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
