The Ivory Coast is a country located in West Africa. As it is mainly known for one of its famous soccer players, Didier Drogba, the Ivory Coast has many strengths to show. Bounded to the north by Burkina-Faso and Mali, to the west by Liberia, to the north-west by Guinea, to the east by Ghana and bordered to the south by the Atlantic Ocean, the Ivory Coast is one of the most attractive countries in the sub region.

Due to its geographical position, the Ivory Coast offers a particular density of forest. For lovers of nature and the great outdoors, the 8 national parks, 6 nature reserves, virgin forests and the mountains of Man inspire a lot of adventure and discovery. The northern part is covered in savannas, characterized by large areas of grassland and sparse trees, especially near the Sahel to the north. Its different areas are home to a variety of fauna such as elephants, the symbol of the country, which can be discovered during a safari.

The Ivory Coast also has a strong cultural identity with ethnic diversity which is reflected in a wide variety of folklore and crafts. The history of the Ivory Coast is one of its treasures that will be found through its many traditional festivals celebrated by Ivorians throughout the year. The basilica ‘’Notre Dame de la Paix’’ in Yamoussoukro is worth a visit because it has been listed in the Guinness Book of Records since 1989 as the largest Christian religious building in the world.

Being the world’s leading producer of cocoa, the Ivory Coast offers authentic tours to discover local producers. The cocoa tastings allow you to interact with the local population and experience intense moments. Do not leave the Ivory Coast without tasting their local gastronomy such as attiéké-fish or foutou with seed sauce.

The 550 km of coastline and 300,000 ha of lagoon water on the Ivory Coast appeal to lovers of beautiful beaches and water points.

Commitment to sustainable tourism
Ivory Coast is committed to responsible tourism. Whether at the level of ecotourism, fair or solidarity tourism. Fair trade tourism allows local populations to derive more socio-economic benefits from tourism, as it is developed by or with them, with the aim of improving their living conditions. Solidarity tourism brings together forms of alternative tourism which position people and encounters at the centre of travel and which are part of a logic of regional development. The involvement of local populations in the different phases of organised trips, respect for people, cultures and nature and a more equitable distribution of the resources generated are the foundations of this type of tourism.
