Taï National Park
The Tai National Park is located west of the Ivory Coast. Covering more than 5,000 km², this park is one of the largest remnants of the primary rainforest that once covered West Africa. Listed as a World Heritage Site in 1981 by UNESCO, the Taï National Park is one of the natural gems of the Ivory Coast. It is characterized by a high rate of endemism, both in terms of fauna and flora. Indeed, more than 200 species of plants, but also a large number of birds and mammals are specific to the region, such as the pygmy hippopotamus or the Jentink's duiker. The park is also known for hosting a wide variety of primates, including one of the largest populations of chimpanzees in West Africa. Visiting Taï National Park therefore represents a great opportunity to discover species unique in the world and an exceptional ecosystem in the heart of West Africa.
