Mud mosques and colorful tribes
'Land of people of integrity'; Burkina Faso owes its remarkable nickname to its inhabitants. They regularly vent their hearts through teasing with which they remove dissatisfaction in a playful and humorous way. As a result, the more than sixty ethnic groups have been living together peacefully for centuries. Each group has its own artistic style. The Mossiare known for their large antelope masks, the Lobi for their expressive sculptures and the Bobo for their butterfly masks and musical instruments. The musical city of Bobo Dioulass o is located in the green south with its rivers full of hippos and crocodiles, Lake Tangréla, the waterfalls of Karfiguéla , the rock wall of Banfora and the rocky peaks of Sindou . Along the border with Ghana, Togo and Benin are game parks and nature reserves such as Nazinga and Arli-Singou with the largest elephant and lion populations in West Africa respectively. In the arid north, visitors are transported to another world with sand dunes, dromedaries, 'blue' men (touaregs), the colorful weekly market of Gorom-Gorom and the mud mosques of Bani that do not face east but face the largest of the seven . However different the Burkinabes are, they have one thing in common: their love for two-wheelers with or without a motor. Cycling was even declared the national sport. That brought the country a new tourist attraction: the annual 'Tour du Faso'.
