Burkina Faso

Burkina should be on everyone's travel list, but sadly the current security situation means the unforgettable journey here will have to wait. The country may not have many big-ticket attractions, but the warmth of its welcome and the friendliness of the Burkinabé people is unique. When it's again safe to travel, you'll be greeted with a memorable bonne arrivée ('welcome') and a handshake.
