    What to do in and around Abidjan?

    1. Looming over the lagoon stands St. Paul’s Cathedral, the main Roman Catholic church in Abidjan. This church in the shape of an elephant, designed by the Italian architect Aldo Spirito, has beautiful stained-glass windows and is certainly worth a visit. Climb to the tower to enjoy a wonderful view over the city, the lagoon and the port.
    2. The Plateau, the business district of Abidjan. Ministries, major banks, including the Africa Development Bank, the famous “Hôtel Ivoire”, Africa’s most famous hotel, and the Pyramid building are located here.
    3. Botanical garden of Bingerville. A fascinating garden not far from Abidjan, perfect to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
    4. Only 3km from central Abidjan is the Parc du Banco. Wander through the rainforest to the central lake or take a detour and walk along bush trails through ancient forests of immense tropical hardwood trees. Look out for the small river on the park’s edge where the fanicos (laundry men) work after collecting the laundry from the whole city.
    5. Local market at Treichville. Get an authentic experience of local culture by strolling around this huge indoor market. Do you prefer outdoor markets? Then the Cocody market is for you. Remember to bargain hard! Also pay a visit to the two mosques.
    6. Grand-Bassam. 45km east of Abidjan lies the old French-colonial town of Grand-Bassam, listed as UNESCO World Heritage, and once the nation’s capital. Discover the colonial houses, the traditional dresses in the Museum of Costume and relax on the nice, palm-backed beach that stretches along the Atlantic coast.
    7. Can’t spend a holiday without surfing? Then hit the waves at Assinie-Mafia, one of Ivory Coast’s loveliest beaches. Alternatively, you can take a pirogue ride across the Aby lagoon to La Passe, where the lagoon meets the sea and the green waters mingle with the blue. It’s pure beauty.
    8. Are you a wildlife enthusiast? Then set off for a daytrip to the verdant Abokouamekro Game Reserve in search of hippos, giraffes, lions and other animals. On your way you can stop at Yamoussoukro, the real capital of Ivory Coast, boasting the Foundation Houphouet-Boigny protected by sacred crocodiles that are fed in the evenings, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, the largest church in the world.
    9. Taï National Park. Dive into the heart of the wilderness in one of the remaining pieces of West-African rainforest. See protected species, like the pygmy hippopotamus, and observe the local chimpanzee population. You can also overnight in one of the Eco Lodges around the park.
    10. The stunning peaks and valleys of Man, not far from the border with Liberia, offer a highland climate, fresh air and fantastic hiking opportunities through tropical forests. One of the best place to find traditional Dan masks.
