Although you could probably find your way around without a guide, your enjoyment of the area will be considerably enhanced in the company of a local guide.


Various itineraries are available depending on how energetic you are, how much time/money you have and your preference for quick 4x4 (which enables you to get back to showers and air conditioning every night) or a more leisurely stroll through the villages, staying overnight in basic accommodation.  Whichever your choice, Barou can fix it for you. If you have limited time or do not feel up to the challenge of Africa without some help, then you might prefer to take an inclusive tour from Bamako.  You can be collected from the airport and taken to some of the most fascinating sites in Mali, including the Dogon region, but also Djenne (with its impressive mud mosque) and Timbuktu if the the idea appeals.
