We spent 15 days on the Niger river – that’s 14 nights camping in the ‘wild’. The last night, having arrived in Kouroussa, we were able to check into a hotel!

The photo slideshow includes a photo of every spot we stayed, except one night when I forgot to get my camera out. That night, we camping up on the bank of the river in the bush, under trees – you would never have known we were near a river that night!

I’ve also updated the route map to include the route cycled to my current location, Bamako in Mali. I’ve marked on (in white) where I have been camping each night, including for the 15 days while paddling down the Niger River between Faranah and Kouroussa.
