Join our extension tour to Timbuktu! For security reasons, we are unable to stay overnight so it is a very brief trip to get a taste of the highlights. For those of you who have not visited Mali previously, this tour joins onto our Mali Highlights Tour. The price for this tour is £2100 (includes return private jet charter).
Meet your driver and transfer to your hotel. We will meet for a group dinner in the evening.
Early in the morning we travel by private jet to Timbuktu. Here we will visit the grand mosque in the old medina, the centre of manuscripts, a 16th century university mosque, and the house of Alexander Gordon Laing; the first European to visit Timbuktu.
Afterwards we visit the Ethnological Museum to see the Well of Buktu. We will also visit Koranic schools and the workshop of the last master calligrapher.
Later in the afternoon we fly to Mopti; known as 'the melting pot of Mali'. Here we will
visit the Komoguel Mosque before returning to Bamako.
For those finishing their tour today, you will be transferred to the airport for your return flight.
