In Mali there is not much wildlife left, except birds. Almost all larger animals ended up in the cooking pots a long time ago. The only exception that I saw were the elephants in the Gourma Nature Reserve. These are the northern-most elephants in Africa. The only other mammals were some monkeys. As far as smaller animals are concerned, lizards and geckos are seen frequently.
