Bamako Guide

Bamako, capital of Mali in West Africa is a pleasant city on the expanse of the Niger River. Although shy of major sights, Bamako is still worth a visit with its interesting street markets and a prominent museum. The city is also a good base for daytrips to other parts of West Africa. Cheap car hire at Bamako provides a convenient means of navigation through the city.

The city holds one prominent gem that is the National Museum, one of the best in West Africa. You may drive your car hire at Bamako to the de la Liberte Avenue to reach the museum. The museum holds interesting collections of terracottas, masks and textiles which are great evidences of the Mali culture and history.

Another site worth a visit on your car rental at Bamako is the Plateau Viewpoint, along the museum road leading to the Presidential Palace. Signs will lead you to this excellent site. The viewpoint offers great panoramic views of the city, perfect for photographing.

You could also take your car hire for a day trip to the Dogon Country, a charming village exuding the exotic norms and the grandeur of African culture. The surrounding villages are equally interesting and can be reached through Bankass trekking. If you want to immerse in tribal cultures, go further to the Mopti area where ethnic tribes reside.

Included in the World Heritage Site list is Djenne, acclaimed for its Islamic landscape. The region holds place the world's largest mud monument, and is lined with Africa's oldest areas. Another Djenne attraction is the Virgin Tomb, which holds evidences of history, old art and architecture.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).
