The risk in africa have been there some years.... You take some risk each day in your daily life, you can have an accident or or or...
But no one can help you with this decision to do a trip like this.
Actually i would still start the west route, replacing Mali with Senegal and Cote d'Ivoire. To bad, because Mali is nice for traveling.
Being careful in Mauretania and staying on the coastline.
But you have to answer the question why you don't do another trip to yourself.. There are many destinations with allows a smother kind of traveling.
I did it, because i thought - that is maybe the last time where it is possible to do, because the situation gets worse.. I dont know if this reason is sufficient for others
