About Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso doesn’t have a large list of highlights to visit, however the drawcard of this country is the warmth and genuine hospitality of its people.  This country is one of the poorest in Africa, however the people are honest. They take pride in the way they dress and present themselves and they genuinely want you to enjoy their country. Tourism infrastructure is limited, but there are some gems here to see.  Some areas in Burkina Faso that are not currently safe to visit, so check safety warnings before you travel.
