Where to go

Parc National de Taï - Taï National Park is a national park in Ivory Coast that contains one of West Africa's last areas of primary rainforest. Five mammal species that live within the 3,300 square-kilometre area, namely the olive colobus monkey, pygmy hippopotamus, leopard, chimpanzee, and Jentink's duiker, are included in the red list of threatened species. In 1978 it was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and in 1978 was inscribed as a Natural World Heritage Site.

Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve - Another attraction in Ivory Coast designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve, though the protected area as a whole belongs to both Ivory Coast and Guinea. It encompasses a geographically unique area and is home to over 200 endemic species.

Basilica of Our Lady of Peace - The Basilica of Our Lady of Peace is a Roman Catholic minor basilica located in Yamoussoukro. The basilica, which is dedicated to Our Lady of Peace, was constructed between 1985 and 1989. It occupies an area of 30,000 square metres and is 158 metres high, and is listed in the Guinness World Records as the largest church in the world.
