Banfora is a city in Burkina Faso


Banfora Cascades

Banfora is greener than Bobo – and of course is home to the famous Banfora Cascades (actually about 10 km away from the city itself – but easily accessible by bike). Banfora has more Faux Types than Bobo – and you get more unsolicited attention.

French and Jula are spoken. Lots of sugar cane fields line the route as you come in from Bobo (a main crop down there).

Get in

STMB and Rakieta, Sogebaf, and assorted taxi brousses all roll the Bobo Banfora route. Rakieta comes recommended above all others. Air-conditioned between Bobo and Ouagadougou (1500F Banfora-Bobo, 7000F Banfora-Ouaga as of April 2009)
