Niono

 
Niono Niono is considered the Venice of Africa. The town is navigable by boat. The mud brick houses, and the mud brick mosque, as impressive as the one in Djenne, give this Venice a real African feel. Niono can be visited as a daytrip from Segou or on the road from Segou to Timbuktu. In this last case, you have to realise that getting transportation will be harder when you split up the trip....
 

Bamako

 
Bamako Bamako is the lively capital of Mali. It doesn't have major sights like Djenne or Mopti but it is a very pleasant city, with good markets, friendly people and a laid back atmosphere. Worth a couple of days. The museum is well worth a visit, with a nice collection of masks, terracottas and an excellent collection of textiles. Bamako is also the place to arrange things for further travel. You can get your visa here and you can arrange trips with small travel agencies....
 

Djenne

 
Djenne Djenne is a very small city on an island in the Bani river. It is in the middle of an area where the earliest remnants of the Iron Age have been found in Africa. It is of course famous for its mosque - the largest mud building in the world - which is unfortunately closed to non-Muslims but is an eccentrically beautiful building to walk around the outside of. Djenne is usually visited on a Monday, so that visitors can also take in its colourful market. However it is well worth seeing on a different day of the week when it is quiet, to wander the ancient streets and alleyways and admire the beautiful adobe (mud) architecture. This way you can also be at the riverside early on the Monday to watch the traders arrivin...
 

Gao

 
Gao Gao is not a very attractive city. For those crossing the Sahara, it is however the last or the first place where one can get some comfort. The town has never quite recovered from Moulay Ismail's raid with his Moroccan warriors in 1591 despite its prime location on the Niger River. Gao is also quite a hot place to be and self appointed guides can be rather pushy, so you may want to move on quickly. For this purpose (moving on) Gao is an excellent place. It is a link between the routes north to Tamanrasset, east to Niger, and west to Bamako. Sights include the rather uninspiring Musee du Sahel (a museum featuring art, tools, household items) markets (leather work, desert sandals, knives and swords), the busy ...
