Burkina Faso Flights:

Flights to Burkina Faso image of Burkina FasoBurkina, or Burkina Faso, is situated in Western Africa and is one of the continent’s landlocked countries. It’s not recognised as a major tourist destination, but if you’d like to visit another African country without hordes of tourists to contend with then this would make a nice place to visit.

There are several domestic airports for local flights to Burkina Faso, but the main entry point for international air traffic is the Ouagadougou Airport (airport code: OUA). It’s located right in the city of Ouagadougou and is served by several African and European airlines. A flight to Burkina Faso from South Africa with Air France will connect once in Paris, though this seems silly to travel so far north before heading back. Ethiopian Airlines offers a more sensible route for its flight to Burkina Faso with a transfer in Addis Ababa. You’ll be stopping in Harare as well as Nairobi if you fly with Kenya Airways.

The Tourist Attractions of Burkina Faso:

Burkina Faso was previously a French protectorate and during that time it was named Upper Volta. The French were here from 1896 until 1960 and during this time French became the official language, and remains so today. Burkina Faso has actually become one of the safest and friendliest nations in Africa, so this really is a nice place to go.

The capital and largest city of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou. It’s a bustling city with a population of around 1.5 million people, and offers quite a variety of tourist attractions.

Moro Naba Palace is in the heart of the old city, and every Friday around 7am you can witness the famous Moro-Naba Ceremony. The National Museum of Music is a major museum for the city and Burkina Faso, as is the National Museum which obviously provides a much more general overview to the cultures and traditions of the country.

National Parks of Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso has two national parks that provide a very different atmosphere to the busy streets of Ouagadougou. Kabore Tambi National Park was established in 1976 but with a different name and was renamed to the current name in 1991 to honour the park ranger who was killed by poachers. The other national park is the W National Park shared between Niger, Burkina Faso and Benin, though most of the area is within Niger.

It’s named W because the park follows the route of the River Niger which forms a ‘w’ shape, and the park is fairly abundant in large species including some of the last wild African Elephants, and the last population of West African Giraffes. There are also big cats such as leopards, cheetahs and lions, buffalo, cheeky baboons, and hippos.

When Should You Visit?:

When planning a visit to Burkina Faso you should probably aim to avoid the rainy season as during this time around 900mm of rain will fall. This lasts from May or June to September/October and is characterised by high temperatures. The dry season is the rest of the year from November to May and the temperatures peak between March and May.
