World heritage city Djenné, located on an isle in the Bani river, has about 24,000 inhabitants and is mentioned as one of Africa’s oldest cities.

It’s the mud culture, which gives Djenné its unique character. Djenné’s Great Mosque is the world’s largest mud structure and a delight to look at. The mosque, the colourful, lively week market and the buildings with doors and windows with Moroccan and Moorish influences will be a highlight of your visit to Djenné
