In the middle of West Africa are the region's least visited countries, Burkina Faso and Niger. Largely untouched by modernising forces, these two countries are a time capsule containing diverse tribes and wildlife which call this land home.
Our tour will take you to both countries' historical, natural, and cultural highlights. In Niger, you will travel East to the ancient Sultanate of Zinder, a city that has barely changed in centuries. As well as visit some of West Africa's last remaining giraffes at Koure Reserve. During the second half of our tour, you will head to Burkina Faso. From the modernising city of Ouagadougou to the village of Tiebele with its unique painted houses, this area has plenty of places and people to explore and meet. You'll later head to Burkina's music capital of Bobo Dioulasso, home to the Sahel-styled Old Mud Mosque. With fewer tourists in one year than Paris gets in one week, these two countries are perfect for any traveller needing an escape from modern tourism.
