    Burkina Faso’s unique culture and friendly locals are what sets the country apart. Although it may lack the famous sights of other nations, there are plenty of hidden gems and wonders that make it worth a visit. The country is located in the Sahel, a swath of land between the Sahara and the Sudanian savannah. As a result, the landscape transitions beautifully from sandy hills to rolling savannah and geological wonders. There are also many traditional villages with their own unique cultural heritage.

    The capital, Ouagadougou, is famous for its musical traditions and cultural events, including the FESPACO film festival. Ouagadougou is located right in the middle of the country, making it the perfect starting point for visiting the rest of the country.
