Burkina Faso Travel Insurance
Once a French colony, Burkina Faso became independent in 1960. This West African landlocked nation is bounded by Togo, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire (south), Benin (southeast), Niger (northeast), and Mali (north and west). Its two biggest cities are Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso’s capital) and Bobo-Dioulasso. Like its name—Burkina Faso means ‘the land of incorruptible people’—its easygoing and amiable citizens are known to offer all travelers a memorable hospitality.
The Burkinabé will often greet you with the polite words ‘bonne arrivée’ (welcome!). Africa's leading film festival, Fespaco, is also organized in Ouagadougou. Geographically, the nation is composed of a vast central plateau, a grassy northern savanna, and a thin southern forest. Bobo-Dioulasso and the capital city of Ouagadougou are both equally renowned for their lovely handicrafts and musical flavors.
Visit the extensive Grand Marché (Grand Market) in Bobo-Dioulasso to experience the buzz of this African city. You will have to navigate its maze of narrow lanes. Kibidwé is the historical area of Bobo-Dioulasso, offering unique insights into local cultures and life. Among the popular attractions here is the Grande Mosquée. Made of mud, its brilliant architecture is based on Sahel-style construction. Nahouri Peak is a great getaway into nature’s lap. After a sharp climb, you will be standing at this cone-shaped peak with vast savannah in your sight. You can even ask your guide to arrange a sunset or sunrise trek. While the roads to the Karfiguéla Waterfalls can be impassable during the rainy season, the beauty of this waterfall never ceases to amaze you.
