Timbuktu, formerly also spelled Timbuctoo and Timbuktoo, is a town in the West African nation of Mali situated 15 km (9.3 mi) north of the River Niger on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert. The town is the capital of the Timbuktu Region, one of the eight administrative regions of Mali. It had a population of 54,453 in the 2009 census. Starting out as a seasonal settlement, Timbuktu became a permanent settlement early in the 12th century. After a shift in trading routes, Timbuktu flourished from the trade in salt, gold, ivory and slaves, and it became part of the Mali Empire. Most tourists visit Timbuktu between November and February when the air temperature is lower.Over the following decades the tourist numbers increased so that by 2006 there were seven small hotels and guest houses.
About Mali Travel
Mali can be described really as two countries in culture, history, landscape and politics divided by the great River Niger. The north side of the country is where the Sahara Desert is and is the home of the nomadic Tuareg for thousands of years. And in the south, the Bambara people can be found there along the River Niger with Fulani nomadic pastoralists, Bozo fisherman and the animist Dogon. The Mali tours and festivals focus on the south and the desert trips take you to the north, deep into the Sahara Desert. The Caravan Of Peace and The Festival In The Desert run from February to March and can either be a week long up to the full month with an option of hiring out a whole caravan. These tours are a fantastic way to see and experience Mali and the essense of Africa.
