Lively, cultured, and colorful Mali allows visitors to get familiar with African traditions and witness contemporary African art and lifestyles. Ancient empires built cities along the Niger River, leaving behind them knowledge, beliefs, and traditions, even as the architecture crumbled. Today, the country's world-renowned musical heritage has become central to tourism in Mali, with live performances of ngoni and kora music a highlight for many tourists exploring this west African nation. Plan how to spend your time in Mali and other destinations in Mali using our Mali trip planner.
