Region de Kayes Travel Guide: 58 reviews and 69 photos

In 2004 I visited Mali for the second time, when we travelled from Senegal, the Kidira - Dibolo border to Kayes and from there to the north to Mauritania.

Form Kayes to the north we followed a track, where we didn't see hardly any other traffic. On our way to Mauritania we crossed several interesting villages.

In the villages the people we met were very friendly. They were very curious, why we crossed their village and very willing to show us the next track in the direction of the Mauritanian border.

We didn't see hardly any other traffic en route, except this truck having troubles.

    must be difficult to visit mali only with local public transportation ; and crossing borders in africa is always a good opportunity to be ripped off by the police
