    Dear Warrior Tours,

    I am an American from Alaska planning to arrive in Bamako on the evening of Aug. 3 and depart on Aug. 17, 2011. I am interested in joining a group tour (camping or low-cost hotels) for 10-14 days that includes Timbuktu and the Dogon Country.

    Please reply with any information about tour options and prices.

    Thank you!
