This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt’s
remains the only English-language guidebook to focus solely on this culturally rich West African country, a place of crimson savannas, sublime mountains and cream-hued beaches that is becoming increasingly popular for ecotourism and wildlife, surfing and off-the-beaten track travel. Written in easy-to-navigate geographical structure, chapters on background and practical information are followed by dedicated sections on Abidjan and the surrounding area; the southeast, including Grand-Bassam and Assinie; the southwest, including Sassandra, San-Pedro and the Parc National de Tai; and the centre: Yamoussoukro, Bouake, Daloa and Abengourou. Moving up the country, the Dix-Huit Montagnes area is covered, including Man and Touba, followed by a chapter on the North, including Odienne, Korhogo, Kong, Parc National de la Comoe and Bondoukou. From wildlife and birdwatching to hiking, trekking, chocolate and twerking, Bradt’s
lifts the lid on what gives this country its unique flavour. Tribal arts, vibrant reggae, Afrobeat and traditional folk-music scenes, and delicious Ivorian food are all covered, as are hotels, the extraordinary mud mosques of Kong and the far north, Drummologie and ‘talking drums’, football (the 2023 Africa Nations Cup will be held here), and unprecedented pricing and timetabling information for the full range of transport options. Having only recently re-opened for tourism,
is West Africa’s hidden treasure. Packed with vivid descriptions, detailed maps and essential practical advice, Bradt’s
is the ideal companion for a perfect trip, whatever your interest. AUTHOR: Dr Tom Sykes has been a travel writer and editor since co-compiling an anthology of hitchhiking tales, No Such Thing as a Free Ride? (2005). Since his first visit to
in 2013, he has published articles on everything from the persecution of Ivorian Rastafarians to the 2015 presidential election for The Scotsman, African Courier, New Statesman, New Internationalist and New African. Now Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, these days he has to do most of his travelling during the summer holidays. He is the author of The Realm of the Punisher (2018), a ‘political travelogue’ of the Philippines, and the upcoming academic monograph A Cultural History of Manila: Literature, Empire and Orientalism in the Philippines. 16pp colour photographs, 27 maps
Standard Delivery Fees
Delivery – From just $4.50 per shipment
Delivery starts out at just $4.50 per shipment. As the size and weight of shipments increase, so does the freight price. To ensure every customer pays a fair price for delivery, an exact shipping price will be displayed to you in the checkout based on the size and weight of the products in your order and your delivery address.
If your order contains a mix of in stock and out of stock products, you will be presented with a choice in the Checkout to have your order sent in multiple shipments (so in stock items ship as soon as they're ready), or all items together in a single shipment (to save money). Using a single shipment will mean in stock items are held back until out of stock items are ready. e.g.
The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.
NZ Post Courier / Express Tonight Delivery – $5.60-$19.50 per shipment
If you live in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington or Christchurch and in a qualifying inner-city suburb, Mighty Ape can deliver in-stock products between 6pm – 9pm on the same day your order is dispatched.
Signature Required – $2.50 per shipment
If you don’t want NZ Post Courier to leave your parcel unattended please select the signature required option. This is especially recommended for high-value items. Neither Courier Post nor Mighty Ape are liable for parcels that are stolen, damaged or lost after an item has been delivered.
Rural Delivery – $3.50 per shipment
If you live at a rural address you must select the Rural Delivery option in the Checkout for your item to be delivered.
