"Mopti: very annoying river town" Region de Mopti by chrisvandenbroucke

Region de Mopti Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 81 photos

City by the river

Mopti lives by and from the Niger river.
The harbour is the real centre of the city

Very lively street scenes

As everywhere in Mali, the street scene is very colourful
Disadvantage of Mopti is that the people are a nuisance.
They're always harrassing you to get you a Dogon tour, a river trip, to get you to a restaurant of their family...
We had one guide who followed us the whole day - he even came to sit at our restaurant table in the evening. I could hit him

Sevare, 12 km from Mopti

Most backpacker stay in Sevare instead of in Mopti because there are many more possibilities for cheap and good guesthouses there.
It's 12 km away from Mopti but by pickuptruck it costs you only around 150-200 CFA one way and it takes 10 minutes.
Don't believe taxidrivers when they say there are no more bache's (pickuptruck). It's ***.

    Africa is one place I've not been on a food hunt. Look forward to it one day. Thanks for a glimpse into what to expect.
