Places to stay/camp

Casa Africa in Bobo-Dioulasso, very shady, on the outskirts of town.  Food is quite good. 1,500CFA per person camping.
You can camp overnight in the 'parking area' of the Cascades de Karfiguela. We 'negotiated' 500CFA per person.
Centre d'Accueils des Souers Lauriers in Ouagadougo.  Safe, clean and reasonably priced at 3,000CFA per person in a twin room, with shower. Good value food, if not in great quantity - 3 course dinner for just 1,500CFA.
Other information Visa 35 euros; issued in half a day in Rabat by exceptionally friendly staff.

Overall rating

Again, extremely friendly.  Lots of vegetation, trees, loads of birdlife.
