“Paradise,but ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Beautiful oudoor restaurant with a superb swiming pool, but, be prepared:

-Painful road to get there, specialy last 4 miles can take 10-15 minutes.
-Menu is limited to 3 dishes per day
-Be prepared to pay 30% more if you decide to eat in the garden instead of the restaurant.
-You will be charged $$ if you just let your kids play in the garden, even if they dont use the pool

That beiing said, every city has expensive restaurants, and you have to visit badalodge, at least once..

“Thumbs up ! Mali is great !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

It is 30 minute drive in the evening and last 5Km is bumpy road. Bada Lodge is an oasis in Mali. Everything about setting is great. You can dine either dine in restaurant or cabana. Located facing Niger River and you cant be in better place than in Bada Lodge. They have set menu XOF 17500/= for Entree+plat+dessert. Food and cocktail is superb! Great place to sit back relax and enjoy the evening.
