Mali Trip Planner & Country Overview

This African nation is so off the beaten path that its city of Timbuktu has become a metaphor for any far-flung locale. Sandy plains are punctuated with ochre-toned adobe buildings, many studded with wooden stakes. Mali can be difficult to navigate, and often a camel trek is the best way to see the austere landscape of gorges and sacred caves of the Dogon before breaching the Sahara Desert, hovering in the north. Be the master of your own adventure with this Trip Planner for Mali.
