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.

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
