Burkina Faso

Trip Planner Africa  /  Burkina Faso

Land of Upright People

Landlocked Burkina Faso offers a welcoming atmosphere, varied landscape, and rich cultural heritage. One of the poorest countries in the world, the country features largely undeveloped towns boasting lively music scenes and interesting markets filled with stalls selling handcrafted goods. Tourism in Burkina Faso remains a struggling industry, and with a largely undeveloped infrastructure, most travelers stick to the big cities and arrange short day trips into the wilder areas. The natural areas of the country remain known more for their topography than wildlife, with grassy sloping hills, Precambrian massifs, and rugged sandstone peaks dominating the terrain. Burkina Faso is in Africa. When using our Burkina Faso trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
