I am looking for a translation of “don’t touch the crocodiles in Mandinka” . In Bambara I am fairly certain you would say “kana maga bama la” . One of our guides yesterday said it in Mandinka but it was quite different and we didn’t fully catch it. Any help is appreciated.
I ni ce, @philpaoletta !
Thanks for posting – welcome to the Forum!
Your Bambara rendering is 100% right, but I myself can’t confidently say for Senegambian Mandinka.
Perhaps @Kamaradeni can help? I’ve also asked some RPCVs that I know. Let’s see if the jump in here!
Hello! In Senegambian Mandinka the phrase would be pretty similar: “Kana maa bambo la”
