Mali is one of the most exciting destinations in West Africa. At its heart is the River Niger which winds through vast areas of the Sahelian landscape, linking the fabled city of Timbuktu with the capital, Bamako. Travelers can explore Dogon cliff villages, the famous mosque at Djenné and much more in a country enlivened by colorful markets and arguably the best music in Africa. Ross Velton looks at every aspect of travel in this seldom-visited country, enabling the visitor to get right to the heart of a land whose people are some of the most amicable in Africa.

This guide features:

· Planning and preparation, including health and safety
· Where to stay and eat, complete with a guide to Malian food
· Ancient civilizations and culture, including the Tuareg and Dogon people
· A comprehensive guide to Malian music
· Practical information, including accommodations, transport, and maps to aid non-eccentric journeys
