Health & safety
Bamako is largely safe, although, like any city, it has its share of pickpockets and bag-snatchers, so take the normal security precautions and never carry valuables. At Bamako train station, the trains themselves and Rue Baba Diarra are popular haunts for thieves, especially at night. The streets around Sq Lumumba (especially close to the river) should be avoided after dark.
Clinique Pasteur (229 1010; 24 hr) West of town, this is Mali’s best hospital for African diseases, emergencies and other consultations.
