I just received the following from Laye Thiam:

The tour price is US$1,428.00 per person , double occupancy.
Single supplement is $385.00. Air transportation is via Air Afrique,
departure Feb. 21 at 1:00 PM, arrival on Feb. 22 at 9:25 AM.
Return on Feb. 28 at 8:25 PM from Ouagadougou and
arrival at JFK, New York at 7:00 AM on March 1.
Other return dates can be arranged.
The hotel is the Independance. The Silmande is also available.

Transportation can also be arranged via Air France for an additional $200.00

and one more night at the hotel. Air France leaves New York on Feb. 20
at 10:50 PM and arrives in Ouaga the next evening at 7:20 PM. Return is
also on Feb. 28 in the evening with an arrival on March 01 at 3:10 PM.
Add-on fares are available from various gateways in the US for both
Seats are limited and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.


As last year, this is a real good deal. I'll be flying Air France though,
after last year's troubles with Air Afrique. I would suggest everyone
contact him at the following address and set up their own itineraries.
(PS. FYI I get no deal or discount for promoting this tour. I do it as I
think it is the best - and only - deal out there.)
