Niger River, Sahara desert, Sahel, rocky hills, Mali

Most of Mali consists of low plains broken occasionally by rocky hills. In the southeast the Hombori Mountains rise to 1,155 m (3,789 ft), and in the southwest the Bambouk and Mandingue mountains are separated by an area of sandy lowlands north and northwest of the Niger River, which cuts an arc across Mali. The northern third of the country lies within the Sahara. In the west is a part of the Sahel, a semiarid transitional zone between areas of savanna and the Sahara desert.
