Mali Things to Do: 145 reviews and 286 photos
The River Niger dissects Mali for 1,700km, and is the lifeblood of the country for agriculture on its banks and a communication highway. Its name comes from the Berber word 'gber-n-igheren' which means River of Rivers.
Travelling from Mopti to Timbuktu by pinasse took three uncomfortable, boring, tiring, enlightening, hot and fascinating days. Most of the time we spent observing the passing scenery, little villages, reading abook or snoozing. At night we camped on the river shore.
