Hiking journey Burkina Faso

15-day small-scale group journey Burkina Faso


Waving children, hippopotamus, impressive rock formations, reservoirs, picturesque villages, plantations and centuries-old cliff houses, our Burkina Faso Hiking journey combines a sequence of special places and experiences!

 


This hiking trip takes you to the countryside of West Burkina Faso and her welcoming inhabitants.
Natural wonders, stillness and an introduction to the local people and their culture go hand in hand.
With permission of the village chiefs nights are spent in picturesque villages with traditional mud-built houses. You get to know the local people, sleep underneath star-spangled skies and walk on trails, which are shared with the locals. Taste the fruits of the season, while the guide shares his knowledge about daily life of the mainly animist population.
Walking from Niansogoni to Tengrela you experience Burkina Faso in a truly unique way.

 

Travelers’ experiences:

Nice trip, beautiful country, kind people.
We have been to places, where hardly any tourist has been.
Reinaud and Frank, November 2015
