You're in one of the most corrupt places in the world, of course you know that though. Imagine what kind of control these people have over humanitarian aid in terms of supplies and $$.

Be safe!!

Still beautiful country, but you've entered the wild west. Be careful.

Always trust your gut! Great write ups on everything. You really paint the picture. How are bugs out there? You mention all the puddles and heat and I imagine it would be thick with mosquitoes but haven't heard any complaints of those. Unless that's minor compared to the bribes and heat! Stay safe!

Hey all,

After days of mud and intense sun and humidity, I'm ready for beach time.

Where better than the Ivory Coast... Coast ?

These may just be the best beaches I have ever seen, anywhere in the world.

I think you're fortunate to have driven from Man with only $50 spent, personally .

This is such a cool trip and it is double awesome to see the KO2s from BFGoodrich serving you so well.

I wouldn't worry about the forthcoming ' worst road yet ' conditions as you're more than prepared for what the road brings, man.

Keep being safe and having a great adventure

Hi All,

I'm checking out the sights of Southern Burkina Faso which are stunning!
I can't believe nobody talks about these kinds of places!

Here are "Les Pics De Sindou" - natural sandstone formations. I had the whole place to myself so I wandered around for the morning:

That looks awesome. Sure seems like you don't have to go very far for the topography to completely change.

Hi All,

I camped on the shored of Lake Tengrela in Burkina Faso.

THIS is the kind of campsite I dreamed of long before this trip began!
Massive baobab trees, hippos grunting near the Jeep and friendly locals!

Best campsite of the trip so far, hands down!

Hi Everyone,

I am still moving through Southern Burkina Faso, and visited the UNESCO-listed Ruins of Loropeni

That's damn cool. The roads look good.

Are you still getting a lot of rain? Looks dry in the pictures.

No, the rain has finished now, it's extremely hot, dry and dusty.
I am told it won't rain again for many, many months.

Hi All,

Being treated like a wallet with legs can sometimes get the better of me.

At the famous Houses of Tiébélé in Southern Burkina Faso I had more than I can handle.
