Update from Bufaso

9 12 2012

Yesterday we returned from Bobo and Banfora which is located in the south-west of the country. It was an incredible nice week.

We stayed at a  camp and slept in a tent and a hammock.

We visited a sacred baobab-tree which is guarded for more than 300 years. It was hollow inside with space for about 20 people.

We rented two Chinese KTM-motorbikes for a few days to explore everything.

The Cascades next to Banfora are one of the nicest sights we have been so far. We really enjoyed the hole ambient and to take a swim in the clear whirlpools of the waterfalls.

We explored the Sindou Peaks which are huge sandstone formations and the Domes de Fabedougou, 1.8 billion old rock formations. Both sides were really nice and good climbing spots.

Friday we spent in Bobo-Dioulasso, the second biggest city in Burkina Faso, to do some sightseeing. The grande mosquee was really impressing. But also the old-city was quiet interesting.

Next week we are heading to Nazinga, for our last sampling week. We are looking forward to see some wildlife there.

Greetings
