Auberge Carpe Diem

Discover the warm culture of the extraordinary Burkina Faso

 

The complete phrase the name of our guest-house refers to is "carpe diem quam minimum credula postero", which means "Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future". It is a phrase from a Latin poem by the Roman Horatius.
Even today, in the 21st century, the phrase Carpe Diem is still entirely current: We want to unload, forget our everyday worry and enjoy.

As a travel destination Burkina Faso is still a mysterious unknown country. But that is not what it deserves to be, because the country offers a large scale of diverse cultures and landscapes to the interested traveler.

Burkina Faso can be translated as "the country of sincere people" and is one of the most safe and friendly countries of Africa. Although it only receives a small number of tourists per year, it is an excellent destination for everyone interested in seeing a beautiful West African country and discovering the African culture and music.

Auberge Carpe Diem is located near the airport just outside the center of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso.
The hostel is situated in the midst of a residential quarter just outside the city center so that travelers experience a firsthand taste of the real local culture.

Auberge Carpe Diem is a small, friendly guest-house with  6 traditional houses, each with a private shower and toilet. The guest-house has a restaurant and as an extra service we also have Internet capabilities.

Furthermore, we offer various excursions and workshops for our guests, such as Djembè lessons, African dance lessons and an African cooking workshop.
