Bolgatanga Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 69 photos
Bolgatanga is one day's bus ride from Ouagadougu, the Burkina Faso capitol. Taking afternoon bus, we crossed the border at around 9pm and arrived in Bolga rather late at night. Fortunately, the staff at the International Traveler's Inn fed us and arranged for our lodging. It did help that we had contacted Christie, the owner of the shop in advance, however.
There's some good shopping, a bank for currency exchange, and post office.
Trips to Tonga Hills, Tilli, Bongo, and Paga are all within easy reach by tro-tro. Ask for directions to the proper tro-tro station at the International Traveler's Inn. It will be an easy hike.
- Pros:Bolgatanga is one day from the Burkina Faso and has good hotels
- Cons:The city itself is no great shakes in terms of things to do.
- In a nutshell:The pleasant countryside around Bolgatanga is worth a few days.
