This is the place you see in movies. Tall leafy trees surrounding a lodge with a large swimming pool just on the shores of the Niger... The food was exquisite. The music at the bar by the pool just right. The staff was beyond friendly!

Here, you are afforded a full day of relaxation with personal huts with mats for sleeping/resting/relaxing, a nice pool right on the Niger River and excellent cuisine for dining. If you want to feel you've left the chaos of Bamako, this is the perfect place...More
