As nice as I had expected. The only drawback was the guy who guided us inside the mosque and wanted to rip us off for a ridiculous amount. See it at sun rise as well as sun set.

Beautiful and impressing mosque. I visited during Ramadan and after the annual reparation so it was in a perfect state. Truly amazing and a must see.

I was able to plan a work mission to visit some villages and programs we had in the area. We were able to spend half an hour in Djenne center and see the mosque. It is impressive. Security in the area is slowly improving and...More

If in this part of the world, you have to see this structure, and Djenne in general. Go by the hotel Djenne Djenno and ask about a guide as they will find you and excellent one. Read about the history of the place before you...More

I travelled 10+ African countries, mostly in the eastern and southern side. When I came to West Africa, at first I was underwhelmed. There are natures and architectures but not as grand and fascinating as in the east, I thought. Even in Mali, I was...More

This is probably one of the only places I would now bother going back to Mali for. The mosque is huge and ironically enough, well built. Some days there are markets going on in the front of it - check with locals. Can get some...More
