Over the past few years we have had innumerable visitors and guests. While this is welcome, we would like to bring in a structure to make the visits more effective. So we have decided that we will set aside certain dates through the year to attend to visitors.

It is expected that all people who want to visit should inform us about their intention well in advance. The purpose and the schedule of the visit should be mutually worked out and then confirmed at least a month before the scheduled date. This will give us enough time to prepare for / organise the visit.

For most visitors we have organised three days of field visits and talks during the 2nd/3rd weekends (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) in March, June, September and December. The next Visitors’ Days are scheduled for 20, 21, 22 of September, 2018. Please mail us at admin@timbaktu.org for more details.

Some important points:

  • please let us know by August about your plans to visit
  • the deadline for confirming your trip (and payment of food and accomodation costs) is September 14, 2018
  • we can only accommodate a maximum of 50 individuals on a first come first serve basis
  • please bring water bottles, sunglasses, torch lights and required medicines

Important: The Visitors’ Days in June are cancelled.
