Burkina Faso travel guide

Burkina Faso formerly known as the Republic of Upper Volta is a landlocked country with six countries surrounding it. The culturally rich country is often considered a lonely planet because of limited visitors, but that makes it the peaceful haven with no sightseeing buses populating the place. The capital of the country is Ouagadougou which is known for its traditions, mud mosques and handicrafts. Read more

  • The breathtakingly mesmerizing landscape in the exterior of the country will make you relax instantaneously. The rolling Savannahs and painted houses will take you back to your childhood and make you feel liberated from the stress and chaos of urban cities. The semi-desert of Sahel lies to the North of the country where you can see the camel and cattle markets. To the South is Nazinga Game Ranch, a natural habitat of 800 elephants and you can view their bath-time.
  • Burkina Faso is a safe country with welcoming and hospitable Burkina be ready to help you. However, it is advisable to avoid traveling via bus late at night as it is prone to accidents or theft.
  • The best time to visit the country is between October to February as the day temperature is not more than 35°C and cool starry desert nights will give you a pleasant experience. It is advisable not to visit the country from March to May as the temperature rises to 45°C and is too humid to tolerate. Months from May to September are rainy months, so tourists won’t be able to explore much.
  • Currently, there is no direct airline from India to Burkina Faso. However, tourists can take Turkish Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Air France Airlines or Brussels Airlines to reach the country.
  • What to see in Burkina Faso?

  • Burkina Faso literally means ‘land of the honest’. The Francophone country is filled with marvels of nature and human.
