Hunt country: Burkina Faso

Hunting period1 December - 31 May
The former Upper Volta is a landlocked country. It is neither rich in natural resources nor in tourist attractions. That's why Burkina Faso is among the world's poorest countries. The absence of tourists makes the local people stay friendly, natural and welcome visitors.

Regarding hunting, it might be interesting to know that there are no fences in Burkina Faso, neither for cattle nor for game. There is indeed nothing like closed game ranches.
