Rando banco

4 Hours | Abidjan, Ivory Coast
Mores than pictures

We invite you to join us for our traditional hike to the Banco forest.

Real hydraulic reservoir and "green lung" oxygenating the heart of the city of Abidjan, the Banco National Park deploys its 3 474 hectares of tropical forest between the urban areas of the communes of Yopougon in the south-west, Attécoubé in the south, Adjamé in the east and Abobo in the north-east.

This park owes its name to the river that rises there, a simplification of the ebrié term "Gbangbo" which, according to legend, originally designated a fresh water genius familiar with the area and, by extension, the refreshing and pure spring from which the Banco springs, with waters reputed to be "holy".

On the program:

  1. Arrival at the ecological entrance to the Banco National Park.
  2. Departure for the hike and educational visit of 15 kilometres (round trip) along the precipice road, the adventurer's route in the middle of the forest off the beaten track, the iroko road, the small village (strong chance to see the monkeys coming to hunt in the trees), the arboretum and nature house.
  3. 45 minutes refreshment break then return to the entrance of the Banco and end of the activity.

Meeting point: Ecological entrance of the Banco forest on the northern highway, before the shell banco station.
