The travel altogether was great because of the locals and the nature I could experience. Mouhamadou is a very welcoming person and a good guide and I am really thankful for that. Anyhow, I would have wished a little more thorough organization and communication, and a little less overstepping boundaries here and there, especially being a lone traveling woman.
