Bamako Budget Travel

Bamako is the capital city of Mali, and is currently estimated to be the fastest growing city in Africa – and the 6th fastest growing country in the world.

Bamako budget travel has a blend of adventure, culture, traditional customs and vibrant West African music and lifestyle.

Bamako Budget Safaris

The name Bamako comes from the Bambara word meaning "crocodile river". This is due to the number of crocodiles to be found in the Niger River.

Travel to Bamako gives visitors a chance to experience a wealth of attractions in this developing city, with a range of highlights to be experienced.

Bamako budget safari highlights include The Cathedral, which is a red stone gothic style church; the public gardens, which are an excellent place to freshen up and rest after a good stroll in the market; the City Centre market selling a wide range of produce; the Pink Market which sells local handicraft; the Art Center; and the crocodile's fountain.
