About Ivory Coast

Palm-tree rainforests, beach resorts and a fading French colonial influence make up part of this pretty country. Abidjan is the country’s major urban centre, where lagoons wind their way between skyscrapers. This is a nation on the move, improving its lifestyle and culture, yet doing so without losing its chic personality. For nature lovers, go and explore Banco National Park, a rainforest preserve with some wonderful hiking opportunities. The beach resorts of Grand Bassam and Assinie are popular with locals for weekend retreats from Abidjan. Food-lovers will enjoy some fantastic French inspired food and coffee here too.
