Maradi, the third-largest city in Niger, is considered a place to stock up before heading out into the historical richness of this county. However, linger a little, and you will discover a town of economic prosperity, buzzing market places and a certain panache about its people.

Head to the Grand Marché and haggle with a merchant selling shamanic jewellery and magic charms like lizard tails or visit the Maradi Palace, rising in grand style in the central square. However, you find this town; intrepid travellers will find Maradi a lively and entirely pleasant place to visit.
