What to do in BURKINA FASO?

In Burkina Faso, tradition is something that overflows. It is known worldwide for its masquerade parties, where each one has a special meaning, being a vibrant reflection of its diverse culture.


Let's start our trip in Ouagadougou, the capital, pulsating and full of cultural treasures. From there, we go to the Deux Bales National Park, a place full of wildlife, and without a doubt, the Gorom Gorom Grand Market, an authentic mosaic of colors, smells and flavors. Other must-see spots are Arli National Park and the village of Tiebele, with its hand-painted houses. These are mandatory stops on any itinerary.

When we visited the country, we only stayed in Ouagadougou, for safety reasons we preferred not to explore the interior of the country due to the instability the country is experiencing. We visited shortly before the pandemic and do not recommend it for tourism until that date.

The local currency is the CFA Franc and the official language is French, but don't be alarmed, many African languages are also spoken there. Oh, and important information for Brazilians who are already packing their bags: it is necessary to apply for a visa to visit the country.

Traveling to Burkina Faso is like opening a living history book, full of traditions, natural beauty and a rich and fascinating culture. It is a country where ancestral heritage merges with contemporary times in a harmonious way, but which cannot exploit this for tourism as it lacks a lot of structure.
