Product Description:
2nd Ed. 2013 1:1,000,000/1:1,950,000 Burkina Faso, formerly the French territory of Haute Volta, is one of those quiet countries of Africa that never seem to hit the headlines. It is typical of several of the countries of Africa that we have mapped it sells steadily, but not spectacularly, and then all of a sudden runs out of copies. We are very pleased that the Codolo family of France agreed to provide us with numerous photos and improved road information as a result of their recent trip to what is actually one of the more interesting interior countries of the continent. We have also been able to re-draw and improve inset maps of the capital Ouagadougoa and of Bobo-Dioulasso, the main trading city on the border with Mali.

Product Description:

Burkina Faso, formerly Upper Volta, is a landlocked country in West Africa. It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the south east, Togo and Ghana to the south, and Côte d'Ivoire to the south west.

Burkina Faso is one of the friendliest, and one of the safest - countries in all of Africa. Even before the unrest that had made travel to the country unsafe, it received only a few tourists per year, and was an excellent destination for anyone interested in seeing a beautiful West African country and exploring African culture and music.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.
