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:
Meeting point: Ecological entrance of the Banco forest on the northern highway, before the shell banco station.
Ce mettre en tenue de sport et porter des chaussures adaptées pour la randonnée.
A l'entré du Parc National du Banco - Abidjan
