Unlike many of the world's cities with infrastructure trying to keep up with population, Yamoussoukro has no such problem--many of the city's sprawling six-lane highways and hotels were built before anybody lived here.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Fri): get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Grande Mosquee. Keep things going the next day: look for all kinds of wild species at Abokouamekro Game Reserve.
