Package Itinerary


Today we explore the capital city of Bamako situated on the Niger River, Africa’s 3rd longest. Mali is a country of many tribal peoples, each with their own exuberant styles of clothing and jewelry. There is nowhere better to see this colorful diversity than in the streets and markets of the capital. In the city’s craft bazaar we shall see sculptors, weavers, leather workers, jewelers and metal workers exhibiting their wares and displaying their skills. One area of the market is devoted entirely to traditional African medicines. Here you’ll find the freshly shrunken heads of birds, monkeys and crocodiles, along with lizard skins and other gruesome treatments. Later we will visit the National Museum, providing an excellent introduction to the ethnic diversity of the country.

Time permitting we will visit the recycling market of Bamako where local artists turn one man’s trash into another’s treasure.

Meals included: None
