Segou Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



Segou is mostly famous form the book by Maryse Conde. It still is the main city (pop. 65 000) of the Bambara tribe and it's located near the remains of Mbella, the ancient Bambara capital.

Segou is a nice place to stop and catch your breath after the dust and congestion of Bamako: It’s a calm tree-lined city with more than its share of friendly people. Monday is market day—a good day to people watch and the best time to find the bright hand-woven fabrics for which Segou is famous.

A wonderful day trip can be made to Niono locally known as the Venice of Mali. Niono’s mud mosque rivals the larger more famous one in Djenne (and it’s generally easier to get in).
