Create an itinerary including Banco National Park
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.
