The Bradt Travel Guide to Burkina Faso provides information including town maps and descriptions of villages and traditional markets. Great attention to detail, honest appraisals of accommodations, restaurants, sights and festivals. In a country with a very limited tourist infrastructure where even your French may not be sufficient to allow you to communicate clearly with the locals, this kind of a guide is absolutely crucial. Burkina Faso is not for the novice traveller but it is an extremely relaxed and rewarding country to visit.
