A landlocked country in the heart of West Africa, Burkina Faso is a gem for those seeking "authentic" Africa. Mass tourism has had little impact here, and old traditions continue to linger. The isolated Dogon culture can be found in the northeast, while in the south, the ruins of Loropéni will delight even the most seasoned traveller.
