Day 1: BIENVENUE - WELCOME

Arrive in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Transfer from the airport to your hotel for a welcome drink and orientation.

Day 2: Full day Ouagadagougou

Spend the entire day exploring and enjoying the atmosphere in city of Ougadougou.

After breakfast, undertake a sightseeing tour of the city and visit the traditional capital of the Mossi Empire. Visit the Artisan Centre to shop for bronze castings, carvings, masks, jewellery, including desert crosses and terracotta beads, as well as leather Tuareg boxes.

Also visit the Musee National. The museum features primarily ethnographic collections, such as clay pottery, basket making and weaving exhibits, regional costumes, including the Mossi Chief's regalia and ancestral statutes of the Bobo, Mossi, Lobi and Gurunsi people.

Optional excusions outside Ougadougou include:
- The village of Laongo, where you'll find a remarkable outdoor gallery of rock sculptures. Artists from all over the world came to Laonga and made these amazing giant sculptures from granite rocks in the landscape. Less giant but still wonderful are the iron statues made by an old craftsman in the middle of the park.
- The Manega museum is located about 50 km north of Ouagadougou. The museum has a rich collection and is full of mystery as it deals with sacred artefacts.
- The water museum in Loumbila (situated 25 km outside Ouagadougou) is focused on the bare essential of life: water. This museum explains the role of water in society, the methods used to fetch water, various types of wells and methods to purify water into drinking water. Very interesting in a country where life is very much centred around (the shortage of) water.

There is also the possibility to engage in some horse riding at Cheval Mandingue and spend the night in one of the villages at the outskirts of Ouagadougou.

Return to your hotel for dinner and relaxation.

Day 3: Ougadougou - Sabaa - Bobo Dioulasso

Depart Ouaga after breakfast and head for the city Bobo Dioulasso, the second largest city in Burkina Faso. It has a thriving market, a fine mosque and a small popular quarter, Kibidwe which is fascinating to roam around. There's also a lively music scene.

On the way, visit the Centre de Kologh Naba in Saaba, a working place for women in weaving, sewing, carpentry, soap making, masonry and gardening. The project aims to improve the living conditions of the women through training and provision of work opportunities. They have a very nice shop at the premises, whereby the profits are solely used for the benefit of the members.

Arrive in Bobo, check-in at your hotel and enjoy lunch.

In the evening, after an early dinner, save some energy for a night time enjoyment of Bobo's thriving live-music.

Day 4: Full day in Bobo Dioulasso

The old neighbourhood Ibidwe is also worth a visit, which hosts separate areas for animists, Muslims, Griots (story-tellers and poets) and blacksmiths.

Day 5: Bobo Dioulasso - Banfora

Banfora is greener than Bobo, and of course is home to the infamous Banfora Cascades, which is about 10 km away from the city itself - but easily accessible by bike. Banfora has more Faux Types than Bobo - and you get more unsolicited attention.

Along the way, visit the Karfiguella falls, a series of waterfalls, and located 12 km of Banfora and constitutes one of the most important tourism sites in Burkina Faso and the domes of Fabedougou.

There is plenty of opportunity to walk around, to swim or take a sun-bath. In addition, enjoy a picnic at the falls. The domes of Fabedougou are bulbous rock formations created by water erosion, and relatively easy to climb.
