Are there any special requirements for driving or hiring a car in Mali?

You should check your government's website for any up to date information before considering any travel to Mali. In Mali you drive on the right, the roads from Bamako to most major cities are paved. Outside of the city roads are mostly unpaved and ditches are common. This can be extremely harder driving in the rainy season where some roads may be impassable. We recommend carrying a spare tire when driving in Mali. Driving at night can be very dangerous and car hijacking is likely.
