Mali visas are easily obtained in Nouakchott - 2 months double entry, arrived at 9am, colected at 11:30am - so if your going through there as most people do it might be easier. Its easy to find as well.
Ask at Auberge Sahara (from there, walk out their door to the road, turn right, at the first road (only 20 metres) turn right and just go straight for a km or two, including past the stadium thing. It's on the right hand side with a red, green and yellow flag on top (small wgite building). If you get to a Petrol station on a roundabout/junction, turn around and go back a few blocks. (google it's gps point as I did)
Also, buy your insurance for Mali in Mori - it's much cheaper and you will have it when you cross the border as the police will check and fine you 25 euros otherwise ;-)
Ask at auberge Sahara and they will call the insurance guy for you (but it's much nicer staying at Auberge Menata)
