Where is Mopti Located?
The port city of Mopti, located between the Rivers Niger and Bani in the Nigerians Delta, is sometimes called the “Venice Mali”. It is located in principle on three islands: Old Town, New Town and market (Medina Coura), which are connected by dikes.
Mopti (about 115,000 inhabitants) and its port are the economic centre of the Region, especially in trade, e.g. with fish or agricultural products from the whole Region. Also the famous salt from the Sahara comes here upstream from Timbuktu for further processing.
What Country is Mopti in?
Mopti is located at the intersection of the most beautiful tourist attractions of Mali! The town, which is often referred to as the Malian Venice, was built on landslides at the confluence of the Niger and Bani rivers, surrounded by moorland. The intense activity of the city from the port, the variety of handicrafts offered on the market, the beautiful Adobebeton-built neighbourhoods, the mosque, the colourful mosaic of the people who meet there are among the many reasons why one should have visited Mopti once.
