Gao is a special city despite it splendour suffering from the encroaching desert. However, Gao has much to offer to tourists including well-preserved historic monuments, in a brilliant setting between the river and sand dunes, with a population of Tuaregs and Songhays, an elegant Tuareg craft market and an enthralling atmosphere.
