Product Description


“Well-structured, practical and informative guide.”Travel Africa

From the Back Cover

Mali is one of the most exciting destinations in West Africa. At its heart is the River Niger, which winds through vast areas of Sahelian landscape, linking the fabled city of Timbuktu with the capital, Bamako. Explore Dogon cliff villages and the famous mosque at Djenne in a country enlivened by colorful markets and energetic music.
This guide acquaints readers with every aspect of travel in this seldom-visited country, and introduces them to some of the most amicable people in Africa.
Inside you will find information on: where to stay and eat, with a guide to Malian food; planning and preparation; health and safety; rail links, transport on the River Niger and other travel routes; ancient civilizations including the Tuareg and Dogon people; a comprehensive guide to Malian music; communicating in Bambara and French.

Good for knowing more about this country Dec 7 2009
By Carolyn Shearlock - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When we travelled to Mali in 2007, this was the only guide book on the market (I don't know if there are others now or not) that dealt just with Mali. Lonely Planet has one on West Africa, but that was just too bulky to lug around. We were with a group, so weren't using this to plan the trip, just as background. It worked well for that and was as accurate as any guide book ever is, considering that things are always changing.

Most comprehensive travel guide to Mali Aug. 2 2009
By Harvey Follender - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Other travel guides cover all of Africa or all of West Africa. The entire Brandt Guide book covers only one country, Mali. Therefore, there is more actionable information on Mali including more town maps and descriptions of villages and tribal markets where you can find traditional life untouched by modern ways. There is also more depth and more insight. The author seems to have more connection to Mali. This is more valuable than having a guide with a more recent publication date. Published on quality paper, the pages are denser and heavier than others but indespensible for navigating along the path less traveled. Traveling on your own, I wouldn't go without it. You would risk bypassing places that would cause you post-travel regrets.
