Burkina Faso Holidays
Burkina Faso is the heart of West Africa and there’s enough substance to the country to transform it from somewhere you’ve never heard of to somewhere you’ll never forget. It’s a captivating land where we concentrate on integrating with the tribal communities of Gan, Mossi, Lobi and Dagarti to name just a few, and discovering the surprising natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and historical sites of the Sahel region.
Journeying through the capital Wogodogo literally translated “where people get honour and respect”, later changed to Ouagadougou by the French, you will be catapulted into a world where old fuses with new, colourful markets and colourful characters charm the ambience, and taxis and scooters mingle with goats, chickens and braying donkeys.
Other highlights include a trip to the Aribinda region where we may be lucky enough to be received by King Maiga Belko, visits to remote Mossi villages and Fulani encampments as well as the Gan and Lobi homelands, tribal dances, intriguing rock formations, the lively weekly market at Gorom Gorom encouraging trade between the nomad herders and sedentary farmers, impressive adobe mosques at Bani, the Museum of Manega, and venturing into the country’s beautiful lake district and exploring the scenic diversity and beauty.
Take your holiday as part of a Voodoo and tribal exploration combining Burkina Faso with Benin and Togo, or opt for the shorter adventure through the tribal lands of Burkina Faso.
