Located right in the very centre of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou is an intriguing city that's definitely worth exploring. "Ouaga", as it's affectionately known by many travellers, may at first appear shabby and chaotic, but in many ways this is part of its charm. Persevere and you will find one of West Africa's most vibrant cities. This was the traditional capital of the Mossi empire, but all the country's major ethnic groups, religions and languages co-exist here with remarkable harmony. Life moves at a brisk pace and you'll find that contact with the people is much more immediate than in many other West African cities. The night life in Ouaga is famous throughout West Africa, with excellent music, bars and nightclubs and the music goes on all night, so make sure to pack your dancing shoes.
