Mali General: 51 reviews and 49 photos

Fondest memory: along with me came a tuareg friend keen on seeing the road himself. our stops were in nomad straw huts and tents where we were welcomed with all the respect due to travelling within the tamashaq society. so we ate like nobles untill arriving in gao where the diet changed to normal tourist cuisine. before getting there we sold our animals in the market on the right bank and took a pirogue and a local transport to get into town. after having spent two days in this nice hometown of the great medieval dynasties of songhay that i had already visited before we went back to burkina with market vehicles and animal transports. just as adventurous as riding my ass off before.
