We took our daughter who lives in Bamako out to Le Campement, not really knowing what to expect but anxious to leave behind the diesel smoke and dust of the capital for a day. We passed a couple security checks, mandatory anywhere Westerners frequent in Mali, and entered a different world. Quiet, green (by Sahel standards) and a swimming pool! The upper restaurant served a superb lunch of sauteed beef brochettes with rice that was pricey by Malian standards (8.500 XOF, about 15€) but a meal and a taste measuring up to the best served elsewhere. Spent time whiling away hours reading and swimming. aaah!

Le Campement is located on the edge of the Rift Valley escarpment on the edge of Bamako, in a pastoral setting. The 20 or so rondavels are spacious, clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The setting is peaceful and incredibly beautiful, with a range of vegetation seen few places outside Madagascar. The food is superb and reasonable in price and the staff are always helpful if not speedy. 24 hours was not enough. We couldn't spend enough time in the two custom designed pools, one with a waterfall, the buildings melt into the local scenery. We hiked to the rim of the escarpment to see some some very spooky ancient petroglyphs. the camp dogs accompanied us, we think to chase off snakes. Then, we took the zip line down the hill and back up again, a bargain at $1.65 for the round trip. I came home after 24 hours feeling 5 years younger.

Room tip: There is only one suite, huge with a stone bath and huge sitting area. The other rondavels are spacious and more than enough for 2.

We were three generations, visiting Bamako from the UK for a wedding. Our room was a charming little round house, set in acres of beautifully tended grounds. It was comfortable, if not luxurious, and we enjoyed the stroll over to the restaurant for simple but delicious and generous meals. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who bent over backwards to please us. The high swimming pool was the prettiest I've ever seen, like an artificially enhanced rock pool, and commanded the most wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

The Campement was peaceful and relaxing and I've never enjoyed a hotel stay more. It's Africa, so don't expect it to be like a European hotel, but this only adds to its charm.

I would return tomorrow.

Room tip: Rooms are detached single story little houses

First of all the swimming pool is very dirty.
Second, when i order food, believe it or not, the chicken served to us was eaten before !!!!!
And when i tried to complain they just threw the bones and refused to bring another chicken!!! And u was forced to pay for that eaten chicken. My advice dont go there, they are thieves with horrible service.

I really like the idea of getting away from the unbreathable air in Bamako city during this season (dry). Le Campement is simply perfect for a friend’s weekend trip, family getaway, couples retreat, conferences & events. You can also just spend the day however I would not leave too late during this period for obvious security reasons. We (family & colleagues - kids 11 & 3 yrld) spent a weekend there and it was exactly the relaxing session we were all hoping for. I had a very nice room (11 - 38 000 FCFA) and was very pleased waking up in the morning with the sound of nature. There is a lot of activities for kids all ages and supervised session (with an instructor) can be purchased upon arrival (5000 FCFA for about 2 hours); all sums up to a stress free weekend. As far as food goes, I am a huge fan of their appetizers, especially the ones from the main restaurant down the hill, we usually order all of them and share. One of us ordered the Captain fish with capers sauce (main dish) and it was extremely delicious, and oh I almost for forgot to mention the desert : fondant au chocolat that was from the daily menu = BEST so far. Overall in terms of price, Le Campement is well worth the money spent on it, great value for money.

Room tip: I loved the 11, big enough and well structured. Close to everything.
