Plan Your Mali Visit

As a Saharan country, Mali is extremely hot in summer and from March to May temperatures can be in excess of 40 degrees. To plan your visit to Mali, the best time is during the cooler, more pleasant winter months when temperatures are closer to 30 degrees. If you plan to travel by boat during your visit, be sure to visit in November to December, while the rivers are still navigable following the rainy season. The wet season itself certainly lives up to its name as the country plays host to some of the world’s most magnificent thunderstorms.
