The best things to discover in Mali

Hello everyone,

What have you discovered in Mali that you would recommend to other expats?

Are there any places that you enjoy visiting on the weekends, be it areas of natural beauty or shopping malls? Are there any Malian dishes that you would recommend?

What are some of the best activities in Mali?

Are there any unique customs or places you were introduced to by locals that you think other expats might be interested in? Are there any local festivals that expats might want to get involved with?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.


Only been in Bamako one week but experienced quite a few good things: Nature-wise: "Les Hauteurs de Lassa" and its lake (take the old Kati road out of Bamako and the hills come up on the left hand side). Beautiful valley up there. Restaurants; Chez Thierry is very nice and a sundowner on hotel Le Mandés terrace is a pleasure. But the very best here: The Malian people: in general friendly and helpful.
