Mali 2007/2008


At the end of 2007 into the new year 2008 I went on this trip to Mali. At that time it still was a very common destination to go. Today many parts of Mali are very risky for touristic visits. Mali is a fantastic touristic destination, however, learning about the political and cultural diversities and conflicts must be part of any tour through the country.

This trip included places like the capital Bamako, cities of San, Ségou, Djenné, Mopti, Niafunke, Timbuktu, the Hombori mountains, the Dogon country, and the river Niger.

At that time I always took slides, therefore all pictures shown here are scans from those slides.
