Getting tourist board information right before and even during your vacation in Bamako, Mali can really help you benefit from the most up-to-date details about the region you are visiting. Perhaps there is a festival occurring that is new on the calendar that a tourist board can help you with.

The United States Government has a Consular Information page dedicated Mali which is full information regarding the current political climate in the country, safety and health concerns as well as the law differences. Checking with your own government or the host country's embassy is always a good idea before traveling to make sure you meet all of the entry-requirements. The U.S. government provides a list of requirements on the Consular Information page.

Visiting  Africa's official online tourist board will also help you prepare for your trip to the beautiful Mali. The site will educate you on all the different regions, their highlights and events and provide you with maps and help on how to get there.

Bamako does not have an online tourist board therefore, if you require additional information, contact the African tourist board; click here to be directed. You can also request a sample itinerary planner from this contact page.
