I was stunned by how close this oasis of natural beauty was to the dense urban areas of downtown. There is a cost for admittance per person. One can walk from the entrance of the park or drive to a location deep inside the park...More

You cannot visit Abidjan without stopping here. It's a jungle oasis and a green lung in this sprawling city. I had a great guide called Aziz who took me on a 3 hour walk. It's a beautiful area and the entrance fee goes to a...More

There's no need to book or go with a group. You just turn up and pay the entrance fee and they will let you in. They may ask if you want a guide, which i would suggest is useful for your first visit but after that just go on your own.
