Trade the traffic-infested streets for lions, elephants, monkeys, crocs, and tortoises at Zoo National du Mali, perched on a hilltop outside the city. The zoo features a small forest and an artificial river for big cats, plus a variety of colorful fish located in a separate aquarium. Watch chimps swing in a hammock and observe large green enclosures with buffalos, ostriches, and deer. Some spots have an additional surcharge, including the reptile house, aviary, and aquarium.

  • Beautiful zoo showing specimens of African fauna, lion, elephant, buffalo, monkeys and birds as well as many reptiles. Sponsored by the foundation of the aga khan.

  • This Zoo is very nice and the animals are well taken care of. Better than the dozens of Americans zoos I've seen.  more »
