Explore Burkina Faso with this Today travel guide, published by Jaguar. It contains a lot of cultural information on what to see and what to visit in this place, as well as practical tips and colourful illustrations.

Nestled in the Niger Bend, in the heart of West Africa, Burkina Faso, which means « country of integrity », is the symbol of meeting and exchanging. It is a country mostly made up of savannah, with hardly any mountains. One of the most remarkable is the Banfora Cliffs and the Sindou Peaks in the West. In the North, the great Oursi dunes give visitors a taste of the wide open Saharan spaces to be found in Mali and Niger, its neighbours.

Everywhere, villages stud the savannah, with big dams here and there to provide water to the surrounding areas. Rice paddies and market gardens stretch as far as the eye can see. Tourists are invited to take a elephant- and lion-spotting safari in the W and Arli National Parks, while the capital, Ouagadougou, comes to life according to local and international festivals. There is no shortage of entertainment: shopping, cinema, crafts, restaurants, museums, and monuments. But what most tourists retain is the hospitality of its wealth of people. Discover the smile of this incredible country!

Size: 26 x 15 cm; colourful pictures and photographs; hard cover.
