    Close to the village Toumousséni in Banfora region a small village can be found with a sacred Baobab tree. The tree served the small villagers to hideaway from enemies in former days.

    The tree accommodates a big room of about 16 square meter with a height of 5 meter, it looks like a dome. Today is is the sleeping room of hundreds of bats.

    The tree still serves the villagers as a sacred place to give tribute to their
    ancestors.

    Take the road R28 from Banfora 13km to the west. Than take the earth road to west about 4km, it is the road to Soubakaniédougou. You will find the spot approx. at the right hand side, the challenge is of course to find the right junction to the 2km offside located village.

    Jimoh Lateef Dada, a excellent tour gude from Banfora, showed us this hidden attraction
