About Burkina Faso
Capital city: Ouagadougou

While the tourism industry is in its infancy in Burkina Faso, there are still some good places to stay in the main cities, along with family-run guesthouses elsewhere. You’ll find West African food, such as fresh water fish, beans, yams, maize and okra, and the national drink is Zoom-kom, which is a milky liquid, best served with ice. Try Maquis Aboussouan in Ouagadougou for traditional dishes, such as grated cassava, or Chez Tante Propre for rice dishes. If you love wildlife and beautiful scenery, you won’t be disappointed with national parks, such as the W National Park and the Mare aux Hippopotames, and amazing landscapes. Burkina Faso is also the place to go if you enjoy music and hand-crafted goods, particularly in Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso. Ouagadougou hosts the International Art and Craft Fair every couple of years on every even-numbered year, and the country also plays host to Fespaco film festival, which takes place on odd-numbered years.
