Mini Tours of Mali
These brief excursions are popular with visitors who are already in Mali.
For travellers coming to Mali specifically to visit our beautiful country, our longer standard tours are more worthwhile because Mali is vast and there is so much to see.
These short tours are private, and arranged upon request; there are no group departures, no fixed departure dates.
Post-conference tours will be customized and implemented upon request.
Tours start and finish in Bamako; they include:
- private ground transportation
- all accommodations outside Bamako, with continental breakfast
- experienced English-speaking guide-escort
- all hotel taxes and local tourism taxes
- all sightseeing and entry fees, as per itinerary
Tours do not include travel to/from Mali, non-specified meals, drinks/bottled water, tips, optional items and personal expenses.
**Post-conference tours** : many conference-attendees would love to visit Mali for a few days after their conference, but the price can be surprisingly high for only 1-2 travellers (due to transportation costs—Mali is vast and the interesting sites are far from Bamako).
If you get other conference participants to join you, transportation costs are shared and the tour price per person becomes very reasonable.
To request a price, be sure to indicate the number of persons in your travel party, and the timing of your visit.
