Location & Geography
Mali is located in the interior of West Africa and the North of the Equator reaching to the Tropic of Cancer. It is landlocked, sharing borders with Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Niger and Algeria. There are two large river systems: the Senegal and the Niger. The river Senegal crosses into Mali from Guinea in the South and follows a North-west course into Senegal. The other flows across the heart of Mali and serves as the most important waterway of transportation. The country has a small area of arable land, forests and woodlands. Mali stretches across three different climatic regions: the tropical Sudanese savanna in the South; the semi-arid steppe lands of Sahel in the middle and finally, dry, sandy plains dotted with sparse trees in the North.
