We came to Badalodge only for a day, so did not stay in the rooms. It was on a weekday so the place was very quiet which we were told was not the case during the weekends. Our group had a great time in a Hawaii-themed pool area with huts to chill in and hide from the sun, as well... More

Restaurant has a great view over the River Niger. Was not impressed with the reception, waiter had really bad communication skills. Food finally came, and mood changed. Great menu...plenty options. Bit pricey tho.

Badalodge is a great place to sit by the water, watch the river, and have a drink. The food is also pretty good - I'd recommend the trio of brochettes.

This place is great to spend a relaxing Sunday by the pool. Friendly staff, excellent service and really nice food. All in all, a really nice day with great views of the river!! P.S the beer is really cold and they have a good selection of spirits and cocktails all served by the pool or under the outdoor bar. Definitely... More

This is the place you see in movies. Tall leafy trees surrounding a lodge with a large swimming pool just on the shores of the Niger... The food was exquisite. The music at the bar by the pool just right. The staff was beyond friendly!

This is the best good eatery I've found so far.I had poulet yassa (half-chicken with onions) and the food quality was impressive: chicken was of high quality, tasty

Here, you are afforded a full day of relaxation with personal huts with mats for sleeping/resting/relaxing, a nice pool right on the Niger River and excellent cuisine for dining. If you want to feel you've left the chaos of Bamako, this is the perfect place to go!

HAve been ther several times and have always enjoyed it. Teh access road in teh rainy season can be a challenge so make sure you have a 4x4 after heavy rains.
