It’s just a while ago that we added the tailor-made option to the Papillon Reizen website and apparently it does meet people’s needs!
Not everybody is looking for a group journey and if they do, the dates might just not be suitable. So that’s what Mali Tailor-made is for: for anyone’s specific wishes, time frame and budget.
Within one week after adding it to our website we had a wonderful guest staying in Ségou for a couple of days, taking a well-deserved break from her busy Bamako-meetings schedule, exploring Ségou and its surroundings with our guide.
And only a few days ago we said goodbye to another lovely guest who made an amazing two week round trip. The Malians not only stole her heart, she’s anchored in ours also!
Her willingness to travel in Mali during the so called ‘hot season’ and against the advices was highly rewarded! Not only is it a season with hardly any other tourists, so that she had lots of space everywhere, she also was as lucky as to be in Dogon Country while there was a funeral ceremony going on with dances that included all original masks. (I honestly hope to be that lucky myself one day!)
On top of that she went elephant spotting, saw a nice herd of about ten and travelled on all the way to legendary Timbuktu enjoying a sunset camel ride into the desert. Luckily she also ‘allowed’ us to share our beautiful home town Ségou with her and was taken with its laid-back atmosphere.
We are grateful for these beautiful women, trusting our experience and knowledge. We hope to see them again someday as we are looking forward to share Mali with many others!
