Mali, Segou - Motel

Anyone know of a good place to stay between Bamako and Timbuktu?

There are a few of us want to meet up for Christmas. Then New Year in Timbuktu and on to Festival au Desert in January.

Currently in Bamako for about 1 week

Hi Robbo,

Where are you now?

I made it into Bamako yesterday and plan to spend about 1 week here. Currently in Heremekano camping, but plan to check out Le Cactus tomorrow.

in Segou a good place we stayed at was Motel Sahara - otherwise Mopti is a lively place to stop over for a few days.
