Mali... the jewel in West Africa's crown, occupies the heart of a territory that once supported Africa's greatest empires and is rich with history.

The mystery of this far off land will capture you immediately when you are introduced to the animist Dogon people who live in cliff side villages, view the spectacular mud-made architecture and listen to the music of the traditional cora players. The history of the aristocratic desert Tuareg nomads and the colorful mask dances of the Dogon culture mystify you as you travel to Timbuktu and beyond.
