Mopti, the port
A 7 days tour is outlined here, as an example of the tours I organise. Please contact me for more information about all of the trips I can arrange; these can be tailored to suit your own ideas and requirements.
13 Day Tour (Mali by river)
Day 1 (Friday): Bamako - arrival; transfer to Hotel Colibris.
Day 2 (Saturday): Bamako - Siby
Situated 50km from Bamako - around an hours drive - Siby is the most interesting site in the Bamako area. Here, in the heart of Mandé country; at the foot of the Mandingo mountains, in a wild and spectacular landscape, on the route to the Arch of Kamadjan - the great ancestor of the Camara - lived a great warrior; Soundiata Keita, founder of the Empire of Mali.

The panoramic view across the valley here is spectacular. Visit the weekly market, where you can sample Peul dairy produce; Bozo dried fish; buy wraps and cloths from Guinea, and plenty of mangos - the 'gold' of Siby. Take a walk around the waterfalls of Danda and the cave of Fanfaba. Dinner and overnight is at Hotel Kamadjan, with its clean, simple and rustic rooms... Download the 7 days program as an example
