"I've been working in the..." Burkina Faso Off The Beaten Path Tip by lichinga

Burkina Faso Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 13 photos


I've been working in the Yatenga region, in the North-West, close to the border with Mali - the Dogon county, that is the 'falaise' of Bandiagara is right beyond the border - in a town called Ouahigouya. Ouahigouya is an agricultural centre, but the main commercial route to Mali and the Niger inner delta passes trough here. The farmers are concentrated in the limited irrigated areas, using the waters from a earth-dam (in the picture).
