Health & safety
Thanks to a crackdown by police, Ouagadougou is one of the safer cities in the region. Nonetheless, you should try to avoid walking around alone at night, especially along Ave Yennenga, the southern reaches of Rue Joseph Badoua and the Ave Kwame N’Krumah nightclub strip. Never carry valuables on your person.
