On your next trip to Burkina Faso’s capital make sure you consider our Ouagadougou car hire services when it comes to your personal transportation needs. The city is also referred to as Ouaga – pronounced “Wa-Gha” – it’s situated in the area known as the Mossi Plateau right in the center of the country.

The city is served by Ouagadougou Airport which as opposed to most other capital cities in the world is not at the edge or beyond the city’s limits it’s actually situated in the city center. Taxis are the way to travel around this city and many of them will be available at the airport however your best choice by far would be to employ our Ouagadougou car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you can drive yourself to your destination as soon as possible.

The capital features wide tree-lined boulevards and quite a few interesting sights such as the National Museum of Arts and Craft, the Nouveau Grand Marche and the Moro Naba Palace.

The Nazinga wildlife reserve is worth spending a couple of days at as you will get to see a lot of wildlife in its natural habitat and everything ranging from antelope to vultures. The reserve is situated at a five hour drive from Ouaga and as such having your own car would prove to be very useful.

The city offers many possibilities to experience its particular vibe and atmosphere first hand, such as the Moro Naaba ceremony which takes place every Friday morning at a quarter past seven in the morning. It is a fifteen minute ceremony which symbolizes a historical event.

One important place to consider visiting is the Village Artisanal of Ouagadougou which is a sort of a shopping mall for local arts and crafts. This is a place where you can shop for a wide array of local artifacts with considerably less hassle than if you were doing it on the street.

These are some of the main things that you can expect to see with the help of our Ouagadougou car hire services on your trip to Burkina Faso.
