Welcome to Parc du Banco

Parc du Banco

Situated at the northwestern edge of the city, Parc du Banco offers tourists a glimpse of the country's rainforests. The park has a number of walking paths and trails, as well as a lake and a huge array of towering, liana-strewn trees. There are still some examples of wildlife in the park but they are shy and difficult to spot. Visitors to the park are advised to exercise caution as it has been known to be a hide-out for criminals in the past. While en route to the park keep an eye out for the continent's largest outdoor laundrette, just before the entrance to Parc du Banco.

There are a few ATMs in Abidjan but most will accept only Visa cards. It is unwise to use an ATM that is not guarded. Credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and better restaurants.
