Situated in a quiet area of Badalabougou close to the Niger River, a short walk to local bars, eating places, banks & shops, and just a 10 minute walk into the heart of Bamako.

The owners have spent 10 years travelling & leading tours throughout Africa and using their experience have set up a little oasis in Bamako for travellers to use as a home away from home and as a base for further travel in West Africa.

The Sleeping Camel also features its very own well-stocked bar and restaurant, and a peaceful garden to relax in.We have both English and French-speaking staff, and are always happy to help with advice on travel in Mali as well as further afield in Africa. We aim to make your time in West Africa a pleasurable one.

We also have a tranquil garden bar/restaurant area, the perfect place to relax with a well-chilled drink after a hot day in the city or a long dusty African bus journey. Our restaurant serves freshly-prepared food, with a menu featuring typically Malian as well as international dishes, available to order from 8am-8.30pm. If you would like food outside these times, this can normally be arranged with advance notice.

In addition to this, there are also many excellent local bars & restaurants within walking distance.On site services include Satellite TV, free wi-fi for guests, laundry service, free luggage storage, a comfortable common-room area, a book-swap as well as a library of West African guide books and maps to consult. We can also arrange airport transfers.
