We've just received this update from our Expedition Leader Jorge Salas, who is currently leading a group of International Expeditions' travelers in West Africa.

"We are now at Segou, on our way to Bamako, after exploring Timbuktu, Mopti, The Dogon Country and Djenne. It was a thrill to meet the Tuareg -- the "Blue Men" (and women) of the Sahara. The expedition is running perfectly and the amount of content is superb, thanks to our A+ lecturer and local guide. This is one of the greatest destinations of our planet."
