algeria-mali guide problem
hallo to all,
i´m planning a trip from algeria to gao. i´m in contact with some companies in algeria and mail. they telling me that its obligatory to have a guide from bordj mokthar to gao, but this cost about 600 euro for an easy route i can do almost in one day! i dont want to pay! has anybody any idea if its realy compulsary to have a giude. because i have a guide from tunis to bordj mokthar and i would try to do the last part without guide. for every advice ore contact to some agency in mali i would be thankful.
