Birnin-Konni

Overview

Introduction

"Konni," for short, is mostly a road stop for travelers on their way to Maradi or Zinder. Indeed, it looks the part. However, if you have the time or inclination, you'll find that Konni does have a fair amount of character. The Konni marketplace is a dense and bustling scene, even by African standards, and offers a substantial black market for goods from Nigeria, which is only 3 mi/5 km away. The bar and hotel Relais is a clean and entertaining establishment, and the bar Viet Nam, a favorite hangout for Peace Corps volunteers, has an interesting display of murals. 200 mi/320 km east of Niamey.
