A great stay to be had here. Mac is an American that was born to protestant missionnaries in Sangha. Each bedroom is named after an ethnic group and decorated in that style. He seems to be a very good cook as well, although he now has a Malian cook to help out. Every evening the menu changes from Mexican to American to Moroccan, never the same on the 7 days in a week costing 5.000 cfa (7.50 euros).

Double ventilated rooms are priced at 18.000 cfa (27.50 euros) with own WC and shower.
Dormitory rooms are at 7.000 cfa per bed.
Vehicles (3) can be accomodated inside the gates that are closed at 23.00h unless prior arrangements are made with staff.

Unique Qualities: The sumptuous breakfast is included in the price of the rooms.

Address: Quartier Banguetaba, rue 124, porte 836, Sevaré
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Arriving from Bamako, just at the Sevaré town limit take the first tarmac road on the left (very wide) follow this round a couple of curves to a roundabout where you'll see a sign for Mac's. At the roundabout you can actually see the place.
