The Cascades de Karfiguéla or the Banfora Cascades (also Karfiguela Falls, Tagbaladougou Falls, or Banfora Falls) are a series of waterfalls along the Komoé River in Southwestern Burkina Faso.[1] They are located about 12 km northwest of Banfora and constitute one of the most important tourism sites in Burkina Faso.[2][3] The Cascades Region gets its name from the waterfalls. The flow of the falls peaks during the rainy season from June to September.[4]
