Local houses...: "Where to sleep in Bozo villages?" Macina Hotel Tip by F_Meignant

Macina Hotels: 1 reviews and 1 photos

  The kitchen of a Bozo house.
by F_Meignant

There are no hotels of course but it's always possible to stay with a family, sleep on the terrace of the house and pay a small amount for the night and food.

You just have to ask for the chief of the village when arriving. You might also go to the mosque. There, you'll probably meet some old men resting in a shady place. Ask them. One of them will certainly take you to a house where you can spend the night.

Don't hesitate: people are always proud and satisfied to receive travellers.
Houses are perfectly clean.
Fix the price in advance. If people don't want to be paid (which is possible!), let something: small gifts.

Unique Qualities: No facilities at all of course...
Don't ask for a golf course or a swimming pool: go to the river!

Address: Along the Niger River...
Directions: Anywhere in the Macina...
othercontact: Bottle in the river, wind...
Phone: Phone...?
Theme: Other
