NATIONAL PARKS TOURS WORLDWIDE

HIGHLIGHTS, WHERE THEY ARE AND HOW TO VISIT THEM: WEST AFRICA

NATIONAL PARKS OF BURKINA FASO

 

Welcome to NATIONAL PARKS WORLDWIDE with the national parks, nature reserves and other protected areas of all countries of the world. National parks are the prime locations of wild and untamed nature; in many countries they are the most exiting places to visit, if you can find them. This website is your first help for getting to the national parks of Burkina Faso. In many developing countries, the protected areas are still difficult to get to. That is the reason why local travel agencies are often reluctant to take you there, while others have their own agenda, favoring a lodge in a private reserve with insignificant forest or nature. And yet, with the proper knowledge, transportation and gear, visiting national parks is usually relatively affordable, provided that you don't expect 5 star accommodations.

 

On this pages you find a list of the Burkina Faso's protected areas. Criteria for the selection of National Parks of Burkina Faso include natural beauty, unique geological features, unusual ecosystems, and recreational opportunities. Enjoy planning your vacation in Burkina Faso.

 

National Parks of Burkina Faso

For their lasting conservation, protected areas need a lot of visitation, something that is lacking in developing countries. In order to promote visitation to national parks, we created this website. The accuracy of our list varies considerably per country and is still incomplete for most countries of the world, but we are continuously working on improving them. As the lack of visitation continues to be one of the prime drawbacks for their conservation, we decided - after long hesitation - to organize national parks tours that are guaranteed to take you to the best national parks of each country, one country at the time. Currently we offer fantastic National Park tours to Ecuador , Peru, Ethiopia and Uganda.
