    • English speaking driver

      Abidjan Dec 6, 2013 at 1:30 AM

      In February I am going to Abidjan for a special reason, to make pictures of busses. It is my hobby to make these pictures of busses that are exported from my homecountry, the Netherlands, to other countries. Because my knowledge of the French language is very poor, I am looking for an English speaking car or taxidriver who can drive me around and translate for me if busdrivers have questions. Is there a way to arrange this from abroad? I will be in Abidjan from Feb 5 untill Feb 10 2014.

      Thanks for the help and best regards,

      The car with or without driver?

      Cote D'Ivoire Aug 25, 2013 at 9:17 AM


      I want to rent a car in Abidjan and probably we need to have a driver, even if Iike more to drive self, but heard it is better to have one. I tried to find on line but it is impossible. Rent a car company I found so it is one problem less, but the driver ... Can someone advice me how to do to find one? We will travel in 14 days approx around the country.

      I would be even happy to know approx the prices for the simple accomodation (not luxury in anyway). The same even about how much we can expect the expensis - food etc.

      How it is with ATM machine outside Abidjan and Yamoussoukro? Is it possible to pay at hotels with credit card?

      Thank you an advance!

      Tribal masks, carvings etc.

      Cote D'Ivoire Jul 1, 2010 at 7:51 AM

      I have 4 weeks off in August and am planning to visit Africa during this time. I visited South Africa 2 years ago and I managed to find some really beautiful tribal masks to bring back home with me.
      I met a lovely guy from Democratic Republic of Congo who said he would find me some. Sure enough, when I met him again a few days later
      These were not the usual tourist stuff you get at the side of the road, but looked (and smelt!) really authentic, some still smelling of campfires they may have been worn around.
      I'd like to see another part of Africa this time, and add to my collection of tribal masks, carvings and art. Cote de Ivoire looks beautiful, but I'm not sure what to believe on safety and if I need to speak French to get along there?
      If anyone has any experience they could share with me, which parts to visit and where I might find my masks I'd be very greatful.

    • Travel Safety and Abengourou

      My husband and I would like to travel to Abidjan next month and then go to Abengourou, but we hear that it is not safe. Is the State Department correct about civil unrest in Abidjan or is it overrated?

      Please answer the post because we must make a decision very soon. Any information you can provide about the area or a place to live when we get there would be wonderful.

      My husband and I currently live in Seattle, Washington so if there is anyone local that we could talk with it that would be wonderful.

      Thank you,

    • Looking to rent apt in Abidjan Dec 09 - Jan 10

      Cote D'Ivoire Sep 23, 2009 at 7:30 PM

      Hello all, I am looking to rent an apt in Abidjan for the last 2 weeks of December 2009 and the first week of January 2010. I can be flexible regarding the dates and the location in the city but prefer something centrally located. This will be for a married couple (no kids). We are most concerned about the quality of the apt and would like something with a good renovation.

      Num people = 2 (a married couple)
      Location = Abidjan
      Quality of apt = high quality

      Hope to hear from someone

      Hello everyone,
      Wondering if anyone can help... We are looking for information on a club that used to be called Lido in Ajame (spelling ") Abidjan early 80s. The owner was a friend of ours and we are trying to locate her... Can not remember her name but she was originally from Ghana. She was married to an Ivorian called Mr Bleu (!?!), then divorced and married a man from Ghana.
      Anyone who has info on that person or that club, please let us know. We would love to get in touch with her. Thanks you everyone in advance.
