About this book
Mali’s capital, Timbuktu, became a twin town of Hay-on-Wye in February 2007; both are famous for their festivals, but that’s where the family likeness ends. In Mali you may float past hippopotami whilst sailing down the River Niger, greet 300 herdsmen atop brilliant white camels, or stand on an escarpment looking out over the mystical cliff villages of the Dogon people. This new edition features thoroughly updated information on everything from elephant migrations to rock-climbing. It also includes a new, comprehensive guide to the music and festivals of Mali, including the Festival in the Desert to which increasing numbers of tourists flock.
