Today, Cote d'Ivoire is now being marketed as one of the top destinations in Africa with its vast collection of historical churches and places, a variety of animals and plants in all sizes and its wondrous landscape.

Here, you experience Africa at its best as you can explore its forests and plains and have a night out with the beasts in the jungle. A reminder though, bring your flash light when you go out, I'm pretty sure you'll be at your wits end by the time you go back for fear of coming face to face with a lion.
