Burkina Faso

Located in the heart of western Africa, Burkina Faso is a land-locked country that shares borders with Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the south east, Togo and Ghana to the south and finally Côte d’Ivoire to the south east.

The diversity of the ethnic groups in the country is without doubt a source of cultural richness waiting to be discovered.

Events such as the SIAO (The International Craftwork Salon of Ouagadougou) and the FESPACO (The Ouagadougou Pan-African Festival of Cinema), held every two years, attract thousands of visitors on each occasion. In addition, a number of cultural exhibitions and events are held across Burkina throughout the year.
