Discover Cote D’Ivoire 7 Days

Cote D'Ivoire (Abidjan, Yamoussoukro, Grand Bassam, Tiagba)

This 7 day journey offers many sites to see including one of the largest churches in the world, the Basilique de Notre Dame de la Paix, seaside resorts, and a game reserve.

Day 2 Abidjan And Vicinity

Today, visit metropolitan Abidjan including Le Plateau, the central, high-rise commercial area, Cocody, the upscale residential section and Treichville, which is linked to Le Plateau by two major bridges. Treichville is one of the areas where the masses live. It has a few colorful markets and quite an interesting, vibrant nightlife.
No tour of Abidjan would be complete without a visit to the north-western part of town, Abobo, where Africa’s largest outdoor launderette (laundry) is located. Here you will witness an unforgettable spectacle, hundreds of Fanicos (washer men, no women), jam together in the middle of a stream to wash clothes. They work all day every day, frantically rubbing garments on huge stones held in place by old car vehicle tires then spreading the clothes over rocks and grass in a large drying area. Despite the look of confusion, they never get their clients clothes mixed or missing.

Overnight at Ibis Abidjan Plateau Hotel or Similar

Day 3 Abidjan To Yamoussoukro (245Km)

After breakfast travel north through the central region to Yamoussoukro, the official capital of the country. Yamoussoukro owes its good fortune as the birth place of Cote d’Ivoire’s first president, Houphouët-Boigny who spent lavishly on his native village. Virtually no traditional African houses are left; Houphouët-Boigny replaced them with concrete middle class structures.
The dazzling centerpiece of it all is the Basilique de Notre Dame de la Paix, (The Basilica “Our Lady of Peace) which is the biggest church in the world, after the Vatican, and is almost an exact replica of St Peter’s in Rome. The 36 immense stained glass windows, all hand blown in France are an unforgettable sight.
