Bradt Travel Guides. Edition 2011. Engelsk text.
From balafon players in the laidback town of Bobo-Dioulasso to masters of horsemanship further north - plus internationally recognised film, jazz, hip hop and craft festivals - landlocked Burkina Faso, in the heart of west Africa, has something to offer everyone. This new edition of the only English-language guidebook to Burkina Faso leads visitors on camel safaris from desert markets to dramatic waterfalls and spectacular sandstone rock formations, past the extraordinary architecture of 16th-century Mossi, Lobi stone ruins and Koro's hillside caves. Sports fans can even witness the cycling race, Tour du Faso, in this magical country, one of Africa's best-kept secrets.
