Burkina Faso is in West Africa is a wonderful place to visit if you want to experience a warm West African welcome and get a taste for real West African culture infused with great West African music. In fact Burkina Faso is considered by many to be the home of West African music.
You can also see some amazing sculptures in Laongo or take a camel ride into the dessert. There is so much to do here – although between 12 and 3 in the afternoon is resting time so don’t make too many plans during those hours – especially not ones that involve trips to shops, banks.
Despite the friendly people and the warm welcome, please remember that Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world, so please be sensible with your valuables here.
