"Ghost train to Dakar" Bamako Transportation Tip by SirRichard
Bamako Transportation: 10 reviews and 15 photos
The Railway Station is a beautiful colonial building, but is virtually EMPTY inside. Once part of a french project to extend the railways into its african colonies, nowadays it only serves 1 weekly train to Dakar. This train is a kind of a nightmare, taking 3-4 days to get to Dakar in rather hard conditions. It runs once weekly but the day depends on when the train arrives to Dakar and comes back!
The only info you get for the train in the station is a hand-written paper with the prices.
If you ever dare, take the 1st class.
