Join us while we travel into two of West Africa's least visited countries. Our tour begins in Niger where we travel East to the ancient sultanate of Zinder, a city that has barely changed in centuries. We also get the chance to visit some of West Africa's last remaining giraffes at Koure reserve.
During the second half of our tour we head West to Burkina Faso. From the modern city of Ougadougou to the pretty village of Tiebele with it's unique painted houses. We later head to Burkina's music capital of Bobo Dioulasso, also home to the incredible grand Mosque, Burkina Faso's most famous site.
