About Burkina faso
Burkina Faso, literally meaning 'Land of Incorruptible People', is a landlocked West African nation that impresses with its resilient culture and charming geography. It is surrounded by six countries - Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the southeast, Togo and Ghana to the south, and Côte d'Ivoire to the southwest. The capital and largest city of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou, a bustling city that serves as the country's administrative, communications, cultural, and economic center. Despite being resource-poor and landlocked, Burkina Faso has fostered a vibrant cultural identity. Known for its rich tradition in music, dance, and story-telling, Burkina Faso's cultural scene thrives amidst the adversities. The Mossi, the largest ethnic group in Burkina Faso, are particularly renowned for their fascinating tradition of masked dances and processions. The nation's economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, with around 80% of the population engaged in farming. The primary cash crop is cotton. The climate in Burkina Faso is primarily tropical with two pronounced seasons - the rainy and dry season. Despite its environmental challenges, Burkina Faso is home to several national parks like the Arli National Park and the 'W' National Park. These parks are a testimony to the country's commitment to conservation and they serve as excellent spots for wildlife viewing, particularly elephants and various species of birds.
