We are situated in Badalabougou Est.

From the centre of Bamako:

Cross the Niger River on the Pont des Martyrs bridge. Take the 1st left after the bridge, by the hippo playing football. Go past the German Embassy, then take the next left by the Egyptian Embassy. The Sleeping Camel is a short way down this street on the left-hand side.

Located Near

We are located in a quiet area of Badalabougou, close to the Niger River. We are behind the German Embassy & opposite the Egyptian Embassy, so our security is excellent. There are a number of excellent local bars, eating places, banks and shops within easy walking distance, including the very popular 24hr Amandine Patisserie, and the well-stocked Azar Supermarket.

A short walk across the Pont des Martyrs bridge crossing the river brings you into the bustling heart of Bamako with all its attractions, including the large and colourful central market, an excellent museum, many restaurants offering a range of local and international cuisines, along with bars & nightclubs showcasing live music from the renowned Malian music scene.

We are also just a few minutes walk from the Palais de Culture, which often features live music.
