Roundtrip Burkina Faso
with mask festival Festima

9-day roundtrip Burkina Faso, small-scale group journey

Colorful masks, the sounds of traditional instruments, ancient architecture, stunning nature and an impression of local life; Burkina Faso offers it all!


During this trip we travel through the country of the sincere people. Along the way we visit beautiful and interesting places and are introduced to the local people. We get an impression of the landscapes, of the traditional architecture and nature.  
The visit to Festima, the international mask festival, taking place every other year in Dédougou, is a highlight of this trip. Multiple countries and ethnical groups have sent a delegation of their best mask dancers to the festival.
Join us on a journey to remember!
