Tourism

Even if Burkina Faso has only a few attractive tourist destinations, tourism is becoming increasingly important in economic terms. In 2015 around 200,000 foreign guests came, in addition to transit and congress travelers from neighboring countries, above all European nature and hunting tourists. Burkina Faso has the largest population in West Africa with an estimated 4,500 elephants. The largest game reserves are Arly, Pama and Nazinga. The cross-border national park complex W – Arly – Pendjari on the borders with Benin and Niger is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its biodiversity.

In 2009, with the ruins of Loropéni near the municipality of the same name in southern Burkina Faso, a cultural site in the country was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage for the first time. The fortifications testify to the power and influence that the African gold trade gained in the countries of the Sahara between the 14th and 17th centuries. Check cellphoneexplorer to see East Africa Travel Guide.

Transportation

For inland Burkina Faso, the connection to the transport routes of the southern coastal countries, the Republic of Ivory Coast, Ghana and Togo, is one of the priorities of economic policy. The most important traffic axis is the 622 km long railway line from Ouagadougou via Bobo-Dioulasso to the border of the Republic of Ivory Coast and on to the port city of Abidjan. The road network covers 15,300 km, the main traffic axes between the larger cities and neighboring countries are paved. Much of the road network is impassable in the rainy season. The international airport in Ouagadougou is available for air traffic.

History

In December 2013 Compaoré announced that it would hold a constitutional referendum in order to be able to run again in the next elections. The opposition called for protest demonstrations. The conflict escalated when the government camp finally scheduled a parliamentary vote on the constitutional amendment on October 30, 2014. Mass demonstrations and violent clashes with the security forces broke out in Ouagadougou and in the second largest city, Bobo-Dioulasso. On the day of the scheduled vote, thousands of protesters stormed the parliament building, which was set on fire. Eventually the army took power in the state. On October 31, 2014, Compaoré resigned from office and fled to neighboring Ivory Coast. First of all, Chief of Staff Honoré Traoré (* 1957) proclaimed himself interim president. On November 1, 2014, however, Isaac Zida (* 1965), the vice-commander of the Presidential Guard, took the helm of the state. Finally, the military and the opposition agreed on the non-party diplomat Michel Kafando (* 1942) as interim president. He was sworn in on November 19, 2014. Isaac Zida took over the leadership of a transitional government as prime minister.

On September 16, 2015, shortly before the planned presidential and parliamentary elections on October 11, 2015, members of the Presidential Guard (Régiment de sécurité présidentielle; RSP) arrested M. Kafando and other cabinet members. The interim government was declared deposed, and a junta close to the former President Compaoré, led by General Gilbert Diendéré, took power on September 17, 2015. The top of the regular army called on the coup plotters to lay down their arms and deployed troops against the capital, Ouagadougou. Finally, the putschists and the regular army came to an agreement through the mediation of the economic community of West African states to a mutual withdrawal of their units. On September 23, 2015, interim president M. Kafando and the transitional government took over the leadership again. Diendéré was charged with high treason on October 6, 2015 and imprisoned. The elections previously scheduled for October 11, 2015 had to be postponed to November 29, 2015 due to the attempted coup. In the presidential elections, the former Prime Minister and Speaker of Parliament R. M. C. Kaboré as a candidate of the MPP already in the first ballot with 53.5% of the votes against 13 competitors. The MPP was also able to win the elections to the National Assembly by winning 55 of the 127 seats. The second strongest force in parliament was the UPC, winning 33 seats. The former ruling party CDP had 18 seats. Kaboré was sworn in as President on December 29, 2015.
