#1 of 8 in Parks in Ivory Coast
Escape from the capital's urban bustle and delve into a threatened world of natural rainforest at Banco National Park. The national park--a center for research, education, and leisure--has survived deforestation and urban development thanks to the staff's conservation efforts and regular security patrols in 4x4 vehicles. Go on a safe, adventurous hike or a guided tour through the ancient mahogany woods, where you can stumble upon exotic birds, primates, and other indigenous wildlife. Bring extra water with you on your hikes, since it can get hot and humid. Find out how to plan Abidjan trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Banco national park is located in Abidjan. It is accessible by the highway of the North before the 1st bridge of Yopougon and just before the SHELL station. It's one of these wonderful sites to family trips. This is where to go to enjoy the benefits of nature far from the noise and pollution of the city. Visit solo or couple or even with children it is always nice. It is what remains of the large canopy of Abidjan. The Banco Park is the green lung of the District of Abidjan. It is through the Banco Park life is possible in Abidjan. I had a great pleasure to visit this park and whenever I visit it is as if it was the first spectacular: forest!
