Thanks for viewing guys. If you find or have any photos of Ouagadougou, please help the thread out.

Oh btw - There's a "large photo" tab for each photo above at webshots located to the upper right corner.

Great photos Storm Shadow of a pretty unknown place in Africa. Burkina Faso is overshadowed by Mali when it comes to Africa´s Sahel countries... I am happy that you have opened a thread.

































this picture will please Arzaranh when he sees it because he always misses "typical" African architecture. That´s for you, Arzaranh

New Ouagadougou projects. Many of those are entirely financed by Lybian or Arab investors...so the city will also change in the coming years

New aircraft leased by Air Burkina for flights from Ouaga to Paris Orly (see titles behind the wing). It is also being used on the West African network.

Thanks. It's an underrated city and when comparing Ouagadougou to Bamako it seems that Ouagadougou has a few new tall structures, from business, schools to housing. Bamako only seems to have the BCEAO tower and many old classic structures. I've created a Bamako and even a Niamey thread not so long ago. Ouagadougou is the most impressive out of the other 2 Sahelian cities that I've mentioned.

EH EH! Never thought Ouagadougou would be this developed. I love the architecture! Very uneuropean and still it doesnt look as if they've struggled just to be different. I think it would be very important for West Africa to have major cities further in from the coast. After all, thats were most of our old capitals were in precolonial times.

The International Airport of Ouagadougou is one of many airports in Africa that are located inside the city limits. This is why recent reports indicate that it will be replaced by a new airport to be constructed by 2025.
