Officially the Republic of Mali (French: République du Mali), is a landlocked country in West Africa. Mali is the eighth-largest country in Africa, with an area of just over 1,240,000 square kilometres (480,000 sq mi). The population of Mali is 14.5 million. Its capital is Bamako. Mali consists of eight regions and its borders on the north reach deep into the middle of the Sahara Desert, while the country's southern part, where the majority of inhabitants live, features the Niger and Senegal rivers. 

Mali considered as one of the rarest country among philatelists. Because of recent terrorists attacks and political issues, Mali became again difficult for visiting and getting contacts. But postal services are working perfect and fast too. These two beautiful Registered covers with my favorite UPU labels sent by my friend when he visited Bamako, the capital city of Mali. The covers posted on April 06,2016 and I received them in my hands on May 03, 2016. Thank You Holger for the nice stamps.


These 4 airmail covers posted by my good friend David langan during his visit in Mali. The affixed stamps were insufficient because postage rate recently hiked. So he forced to buy stamps extra and the staff affixed on the envelopes in "typical african way" . The covers posted on November 06, and I received them in my hands on November 29. Thank You David for the help.
