What to do in Mali: where the most Exotic Mosque in the World is located!

 Djenné Mosque

Have you ever heard of a mosque made entirely of mud and straw? It seems strange, right? But this wonder exists and is in Mali, a fascinating country in West Africa.



Known for its rich history and culture, Mali was home to three empires that controlled trans-Saharan trade. On our virtual trip there, we will highlight five unmissable spots.


We start with the incredible Djenné Mosque, a marvel of clay architecture. Afterwards, we head to the historic city of Timbuktu, which was once an important center of Islamic commerce and education. Next, the Boucle du Baoulé National Park, a paradise for nature lovers. The fourth stop is Ségou, known for its beautiful colonial buildings and vibrant arts scene. And finally, we cannot forget the Niger River, the third largest river in Africa and a source of life for the country.


Mali's currency is the West African CFA Franc and the official language is French, although many African languages are also spoken. As for the visa, Brazilians need to apply for one before visiting the country.
