  • Best to go early in the morning with patience and sun cream. It is worth to experience. Attention to personal effects.

  • The inevitable market of Bamako is a gold mine! You can find any Alilentaire, clothing, fabrics, cosmetics, jewelry, fruits & vegetables, plants... There are so many beautiful things that we no longer know which way to head must enjoy being on-site for a ride in the crafts market
