    Guide.

    Our guide, Abou.

    A good guide is very important. First, you’ll have to spend several days with him. Then, he must be able to organize things for carrying luggage, for food, water and for the nights. Last but not least, he must be able to explain you at least a few things about the region. He has to be a Dogon.

    Abou was a fantastic companion. You can find him by asking at the “Hôtel Oasis” at Sévaré (the suburb of Mopti where is the airport). His name is Abou Guindo, A.K.A. “Le Bouddha”. Be sure that you find the right guy: so many fake guides…!

    Cart with donkey.

    The best way to carry your luggage if you’re trekking and don’t want (or can’t) carry them by yourself.

    Of course, you’ll have to hire porters in mountainous areas. Don’t hesitate: it makes them earn some money. Always consider them well : it seems that lots of tourists don’t behave very well…

    Walking hand in hand...

    Walking is by far the best way for visiting Dogon country : so many places that you can’t reach in another way.

    The 2 guys on the picture were met when walking down from Yougo-dougourou. The little one on the right is wearing the traditional Dogon hat.
    He was helping Brigitte (not for money, just like that…) and used to call her “Grand-mère” (Grand mother). She was furious… LOL ! Our guide Abou and I were dead laughing…!
