Country Nr 17 – Burkina Faso – a walk in the Parc Bangr-Weoogo

Country 17/196: Burkina Faso
Destination: Ouagadougou

We visited some of the most popular attractions in Ouagadougou, including the awesome Parc Bangr-Weoogo, which is no ordinary city park. It’s at least 50 times the size of an average park, besides, it’s home to many wild animals, including hyenas!! 🙂 The sights were romantic, but knowing that we might bump into a hyena made the stroll sort of adventurous as well. 😉

Burkina Faso, thank you for the very interesting experience! Wishing you all the best! 🙂

Environmental issues

Severe droughts and desertification, which have been increased by overgrazing and overcutting of wood for fuel, are severely affecting agricultural activities and the economy. They are also contributing to the nation’s ongoing water supply problems. Only 37% of rural dwellers have access to potable water. Pollution problems are caused by uncontrolled disposal of sewage and industrial wastewater and result in an increasing number of waterborne diseases. Excessive woodcutting is resulting in deforestation, soil degradation, and biodiversity loss. In Burkina Faso, 6 mammal species are considered endangered, including the chimpanzee and the African elephant.

Found lots of LOVE in Burkina Faso. 😉 ♥
