Mali, Bamako - Bike friendly accomidation

We just stayed at a great place called Camping Kaira-so in Bamako which we can highly recommend. It has a big enclosed yard with grass to pitch tents on and some nice bungalows. Also has nice food, washing, etc. It cost us 3500 cfa each for camping - Dec 2010.

It's around 8km from the centre of town (head out of town over the old bridgem then turn left after ~6km at the roundabout with a massive tower in the middle of it, then continue ~2km and it is on the left, N12 36.134 W07 56.133). Webnsite is Camping Kaira-So :: Accueil - note that the GPS coordinates on the web page are/were incorrect.

Bamako, Mali

Any of the big hostels crossing the bridge in Bamako next to the German Embassy: The Sleeping Camel or rather Djamilla 500 mterrs far away on the other side of the main road, where the Culture palace is. Food at Sleeping Camel is great and in Djamilla if you ask around you can always find somebody to fix yor bike to sell your car.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
