Mopti Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 109 photos

Mopti is a medium size city on the Niger River in central Mali. It is a jumping off place for explorations north to fabled Tombouctou, east to the mysterious Dogon country, or south to ancient Djenne. Mopti, itself, does not have too many attractions other than a few nightclubs and the languid Niger River.

    Thanx for sharing your travel info, nice pix too! I can understand you don’t drink the water, but not using it to wash your hands or even trail your hand while you’re in the boat??? Frightened by stories is always funny. GRTz

    Great photos and information here, bringing back distant African memories! My wife and I are planning Botswana/Zambia for 2007 too. How about we meet at Victoria Falls for a beer?

    fascinating country and interesting tips, as your usual. Right about washing up in a river. Mopti mud mosque looks like in a fairy tale.

    "Guinea worms" sound like something you'd want to avoid, so it's probably a good thing that you kept your arms inside the boat.
