Getting there & away
When the Bani River is high enough (usually from July to December), it’s possible to arrive by public pinasse (US$7.20) from Mopti.
Transport to Djenné is easiest from Mopti’s bâché gare. Bâchés (pick-ups; US$3.60) and Peugeot taxis (US$4.50) leave from here most mornings, and return in the afternoon. The journey takes about two hours.
Transport from elsewhere, such as Ségou (US$9), arrives Monday morning and leaves in the afternoon.
