Travel to Zinder, Niger's second largest city and home to the most pleasant old district in the country. Birni district was built around huge granite rocks, and it is with great delight that you will explore its narrow lanes and markets. The region's sultan still enjoys significant moral authority and he grants interviews in his palace, next to the Great Mosque, and gives advice on matters as varied as marriage, divorce or debt problems.
