Tip on : Timbuktu - 5 years ago
Timbuktu is HOT! I know that sounds silly but I was completely blown away by just how hot it actually is, and how draining that constant heat can be. Drink a lot of water. Drink more water than you think you need and then drink some more. I also found that soft drinks were incredibly useful which was strange as they're not something I drink at home but in Africa my body seemed to really need to sugar in them. I cannot emphasize enough how much water you have to consume in order to stay hydrated in this part of the world.
