The scooters are cheap and easy to drive. Mamoudou drove one and I drove the other. Belinda sat on the back of Mamoudou's scooter. I had to get the seat adjusted, and we almost had a conflict with a bystanding Rastafarian style guy who insisted on invading our business space. But, the tank was full and we were off. The roads leading out to the lake are sandy and flat, and generally fun to drive over. The scooter really is much faster than a vehicle and less offensive to the bicycles and foot traffic that uses the roads to get things to market. I can't recall the prices, but they were very reasonable. The scooter places is located on the main drag in Banfora town.

Wouol is a development association of several agricultural producers, mostly women (70%). We visited Wouol 14 km kilometers north of Banfora. There was also a small shop. With your purchases you support the interesting local initiatives and hard work of the local women
What to buy: In the shop you can buy 'home-made' dried mangos, cashew nuts, juices.The majority of the products have biological and fair trade certificates. It is a nice souvenir to bring home. My intention was to buy dired mangos to bring home, but it was not the season. So I ended up with a package of cashew nuts. In the shop I drunk 2 mango juices, sweet and refreshing around the warm midday.

Besides the fauna, the flora of Banfora is very attactive to tourists. Fortunately, none of the flowers or fruits that I saw were endangered, but I'd ask before picking a fruit. This is a tongue in cheek tourist trap
Unique Suggestions: Stop and smell the flowers and fruits. It's unbearable to leave them behind, but oh well!
Fun Alternatives: Buy fruit or flowers from a street vendor in Banfora or Bobo
