Mali & Burkina Faso Nature journey

15-day roundtrip, group journey 

All senses are on edge. Binoculars and cameras at hand, the environment is thoroughly scanned; will we succeed in spotting elephants, hippopotamuses and crocodiles in the North of the African continent?
A beautiful three-day trip by pinasse on the Niger river, where a wide variety of colorful birds can be seen, is the start of this nature journey through Mali and Burkina Faso.
