Burkina Faso

Landlocked between more famous countries of Western Africa, Burkina Faso is still a raw jewel for travellers. If you’re looking to go somewhere few have been and see things very few travellers can say they have seen, Burkina Faso is the place to go. It has a rich and important history that has had repercussion throughout Africa and ancient cultures and rites which have been preserved until today! YPT has teamed up with experts on the ground to offer you well-informed and professional travel support for any project you have in Burkina Faso.


Most people require a visa to travel to Burkina Faso. YPT will help you by providing supporting documents for your application. You will then have to apply at the Burkinabe embassy which is the most convenient for you (it doesn’t have to be in your own country). If you were thinking of travelling to Mali, we can arrange for our local partners to get your visa within one day at the consulate in Segou while you are out exploring the country saving you precious time much better spent travelling than waiting for paperwork.

What to do in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a land with varied traditions and customs. We bring you up close through our local contacts in the different communities and villages of the country and can arrange transportation with minivans or 4WD on any itinerary of your choice.

During your stay in Burkina Faso, you could take part in the horse festival or any other festivals with our experts aware of what will happen every month and happy to give you suggestions.

Visit villages where crocodiles are revered and kids swim amongst them or have a look at Burkina Faso’s intriguing domes, rock formations like nowhere else in the world.

Tours can start from the capital, Ouagadougou, but can also be combined with overland tours to or from the neighbouring countries (Mali, Benin, Togo, Ghana and Ivory Coast) with us taking care of all the border crossing formalities and informing you on all the technicalities of such an endeavour. The only limit to a trip in western africa with us is your imagination, and even then, we can provide suggestions!

All of this at the best prices using the best relationship in the country!
