This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt’s Ivory Coast remains the only English-language guidebook to focus solely on this culturally rich West African country, a place of crimson savannas, sublime mountains and cream-hued beaches that is becoming increasingly popular for ecotourism and wildlife, surfing and off-the-beaten track travel. Written in easy-to-navigate geographical structure, chapters on background and practical information are followed by dedicated sections on Abidjan and the surrounding area; the southeast, including Grand-Bassam and Assinie; the southwest, including Sassandra, San-Pe´dro and the Parc National de Tai¨; and the centre: Yamoussoukro, Bouake´, Daloa and Abengourou. Moving up the country, the Dix-Huit Montagnes area is covered, including Man and Touba, followed by a chapter on the North, including Odienne´, Korhogo, Kong, Parc National de la Comoe´ and Bondoukou.
From wildlife and birdwatching to hiking, trekking, chocolate and twerking, Bradt’s Ivory Coast lifts the lid on what gives this country its unique flavour. Tribal arts, vibrant reggae, Afrobeat and traditional folk-music scenes, and delicious Ivorian food are all covered, as are hotels, the extraordinary mud mosques of Kong and the far north, Drummologie and ‘talking drums’, football (the 2023 Africa Nations Cup will be held here), and unprecedented pricing and timetabling information for the full range of transport options.
Having only recently re-opened for tourism, Ivory Coast is West Africa’s hidden treasure. Packed with vivid descriptions, detailed maps and essential practical advice, Bradt’s Ivory Coast is the ideal companion for a perfect trip, whatever your interest.
