Heinrich Barth’s House, Timbuktu, Mali 

Heinrich Barth’s incredible five-year journey began in Tripoli and took him first to Agadez, then through Nigeria and finally, in September 1853, he reached Timbuktu disguised as a Tuareg. He stayed for the best part of a year before narrowly escaping with his life and eventually returning to Europe. East of Sidi Yahiya Mosque, Heinrich Barth’s House, where he stayed, is now a tiny museum containing reproductions of Barth’s drawings and extracts of his writings.
