The car with or without driver?  (3 Answers)


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.  (1 Answer)

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.

Tai National Park  (2 Answers)

Anybody been to Tai National Park recently? Checked out the website but the English page is down and I speak little to no French or German. I know the elections are close at hand but if they get pushed back I would not mind heading over there for a couple of days during a stay in CI.

Thx in advance.

Looking to rent apt in Abidjan Dec 09 - Jan 10

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

Looking for info on a club in Abidjan

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.

Latest on situation

I was wondering if there are any active members in Côte d'Ivoire who could update me on what is happening there with regards to the latest fighting. What little info I can get here is probably not very accurate. On peut le discuter en français aussi. Thanks.
