Burkina Faso Holidays

Burkina Faso really is West Africa’s hidden gem, a small landlocked nation with a wealth of attractions that belie its modest size. Its unusual name means ‘the land of honourable men’, and the country is rich in proud and ancient traditions that accompany the visitor wherever you go. Starting in the capital Ouagadougou we get to grips with modern urban Africa before leaving the city behind and heading into the bush, visiting the stunning painted houses of the Kassena people – surely some of Africa’s most impressive architecture. We then travel through the homelands of the Lobi and Dagarti, discovering their incredible fortress houses, uncovering a set of mysterious ruins in the forest, and meeting the king of the Gan people. In the far west we visit Bobo Dioulassou, a relaxing city steeped in history. But the highlights of this tour are the incredible local mask festivals, a colourful display of local culture that shows Burkina Faso at its best. Burkina is one of our all time favourite countries – join us and discover why.
