Yamoussoukro

Yamoussoukro
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.
Get some cultural insight at Basilica of Our Lady of Peace and Grande Mosquee. Discover out-of-the-way places like Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve and Abokouamekro Game Reserve. There's more to do: ponder the world of politics at Palais Presidentiel.

To see reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Yamoussoukro trip planner.

October in Yamoussoukro sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 25°C at night. You will leave for Abidjan on the 19th (Sat).
