Paris of Africa

As Cote d'Ivoire's largest city and economic hub, Abidjan boasts the reputation of West Africa's party capital, while its rich culture remains evident in its numerous film festivals and a booming music scene.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ivoire Golf Club and Ex Poste de Douane. Explore Abidjan's surroundings by going to Grand Bassam (La 1ere boutique CFAO installe a BASSAM, Musee National des Costumes, &more). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Cathedral, wander the streets of The Plateau, get to know the resident critters at Zoo Nationale d'Abidjan, and learn more about the world around you at Musee des Civilisations de Cote d’Ivoire.
