Djiguibambo Things to Do

  • Walk on the plateau

    After our visit to Djiguibambo we walked back on the plateau.It was a nice and easy walk, even in the sunshine, because of a little breeze. So we enjoyed. Walking here was much easier than the walk in the sand down in the plains.

  • Djiguibambo, decorated architecture

    There was so much to see in the village of Djiguibambo. So take your time to look around, as we did. Not every hut or granary looks the same. Some mud-walls of these structures were nicely decorated. Maybe the decorations have a meaning, but I don't know.

    The silhouette of the villages in the Dogon Country is characterized by the conical roofs of the huts, but also by the conical forms of the mud architecture buildings.These organic forms looked really wonderful.

    The walls of the houses in the Dogon Country are made of rock or mudbricks and have roofs made of millet stalks.By using these natural materials for centuries the villages form a perfect unity with their surroundings.At arrival I was really excited by the first sight of this village. It was as if nothing has changed for centuries.
