Do this two days trip to the cocoa field of Central Côte d'Ivoire! Visit a typical cocoa-farming settlement and discover how the cocoa bean gets transformed into delicious tasty chocolate, while you are here. 



DAY 01

Bayota

  • Leave very early from Abidjan with the Ivorian tour guide to take the highway that will take us to Gagnoa via the Eiffel-style Tiassalé steel bridge over River Bandama.

  • After a 4-5 hours drive on an increasingly bumpy road, arrive in Bayota town, and then to Barthélémykro settlement.

  • There, local cocoa farmers (and their many and enthusiastic children !) welcome us to visit their fields. Walk through the cocoa plantations, vegetable gardens and rice paddies. See how we extract palm wine and have a taste!

  • Sleep in the village (please don't forget some anti-mosquito products).

DAY 02

Yamoussoukro, Abidjan

  • Take the road again, this time through Yamoussoukro, with a stop in a cashew field.

  • Once in Yamoussoukro, if time allows and we are not too tired, we may visit the basilica.

  • 500 EUR Per Group
  • Car, driver, fuel, road toll, food on the way and once there.

  • Souvenirs etc.

  • We might decide to visit the Yamoussoukro Basilic on the way, and the (small) fee is not included here (around € 10 more).

  • The high cocoa season is in October-November, that's when we have the most chances to participate with the farmers in the ritual of cocoa opening.

  • The lodging conditions are very rustic, we stay in the village in the villagers' home. So don't expect too much comfort! It's like camping.
