  • From Kankan to Bamako

    Kankan Transportation

    Shared taxi, leaving when full from the Gare Routiere in the south of the town are 120000 Guinea Franc (March 2016) and take about 8 hours. I did meet people who got a 5 day visa at the border, but don't count on it. To Conakry about 16 hours and 160000, to Nzerekore about 14 hours.

  • Wood Carvings

    Kankan Shopping

    In the street between the Centre d'Acceuile Diocesain and the Grand Marche (market) are 1 or 2 wood carvers (might be the same shop) making real nice wood carvings, unfortunately in real large sizes so you need your own car or even better your own truck to buy it.
