Niger Threat Picture
Niger is particularly volatile and experiences high levels of terrorism. Extremist groups, including Al-Qaeda and ISIS based in Mali, and the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram present an increasing threat to foreign travelers within the region. Border regions of Niger are particularly vulnerable, and there is an increased risk of kidnap or violent attacks. It is likely military, security forces and related infrastructures are the primary targets for extremists operating within the region; however, western visitors should be cautious of the risk.
Criminal activity in Niger is high. Petty crime, including pickpocketing and theft, are typical forms of attack. Thieves are known to operate in areas where foreign travelers are mostly located, setting a pattern and being unaware of your surroundings may make you more vulnerable. Attackers could use armed violence if victims don’t comply.
Road conditions in Niger are very bad, and driving standards are unsafe. Road surfaces are mainly dirt or sand and can be challenging to navigate if unfamiliar with the terrain. There is an increased risk for Road Traffic Collisions (RTC) due to inadequate road safety measures and lack of due diligence.
