Mali trip to the Festival in the Desert

Untitled document desert_over_1

The Festival in the Desert trip to Mali is a spectacular, colourful and vibrant musical journey through Mali by river Niger to one of the world’s most exotic and remote festivals, Essakane or the Festival Au Desert.

Simply one of life’s must dos!

The Festival In The Desert is not happening in January 2015. For an alternative trip see my Morocco Overland to the Festival of Taragalt
