Hiking in the Dogonvalley (Mali)

Jump to last reply

Hiking in the Dogon is a great experience .But what you need is a good guide. A lot of young pretend te be so but either they don't know the country ,they don't speak the Dogonlanguage or they even try to cheat you. We made a 7-day trip with a guide called Malick Napo . He is a Dogon himself so he knows all the villages and he is very respected by the locals. He knows the history of his people
and he speaks their language of course. He has an official certificate from the government which guarantees you that he speaks at least 2 foreign languages( french and english). You can contact him at Hotel Débo or Hotel Oasis in Sévaré(Mopti). Hotel Débo is a good place to stay and a very good place to eat(capitaine) and it is also a quiet place where you can discuss the price of your trip . If you go to Mali be sure to have French Francs cash !! all the rest is hardly known or accepted in Mali. Have a nice trip and if you would like some more information please contact me.
