Our return flight to the US from Dakar was rescheduled a day earlier than our flight from Bamako to Dakar. Now we have a choice to either cancel a day trip to the Sahara from Timbuktu and go home a day earlier (10/17) or stay another 2 days either in Bamako or Dakar and fly back on 20th.
Any recommendations on where to stay and what to do in either place? It's my husband and myself and we'll be finishing up a trip starting 9/23 in S Africa on up to Botswana/Zimbabwe/Zambia/Kenya/Rwanda/Mali/Senegal. Prefer to stay clean and comfortable with pleasant local flavor.
