There is currently no international air traffic directly to Timbuktu. Therefore all visitors must pass through other parts of Mali. The following pages offer general information about travel in Mali that is not specific to Timbuktu but may be useful to anyone contemplating a visit there. While many travel guides and forums offer plenty of information on the topic, I have included it here for your convenience.

I have researched this information to the best of my ability but some of the information may change. Please feel free to use the
contact me form or post a comment on the blog pages to inform me of updates or experiences which would be useful to add to this information.

I have also included some information about Mali such as
health issues or literature, music, and useful links. See also information on money and holidays in Mali.
