Abidjan is the finance capital of the Ivory Coast and the fourth largest city in Africa. It has a modern, vibrant feel, and is a popular destination for entrepreneurs and tourists. Book a flight to Abidjan with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a country that has asserted itself as one of the world’s best holiday destinations.
When you book a flight to Abidjan with Qatar Airways you will travel on a Qatar Airways operated flight to Casablanca and connect to Abidjan with one of our partner airlines.
A central feature of Abidjan is the array of water taxis that carry passengers across the adjacent lagoon, where you can get a superb view of the city. It’s a great way to spend an hour or two and is suitable for the whole family. Alternatively, you can catch a water bus to the capital of the Ivory Coast, Yamoussoukro.
If you want your visit to Abidjan to encompass more than the city, it’s well worth heading to Comoé National Park. Made up of lush dense forests, occasionally scythed by bubbling streams. Known worldwide for its biodiversity, the park is home to a variety of animal species including African elephants, monkeys and the hippopotamus. It’s best to visit Comoé in the dry season, as you’ll see a wide variety of animals coming to drink from the impressive River Comoé.
Abidjan’s surrounding areas are also known for their fabulous beaches, such as Bassam Beach, just 30 minutes east of the city. If you have some more time, you may want to Assinie, a popular beach town just over an hour away from Abidjan.
While there are restaurants in Abidjan, you’ll find most of the locals gathering at the ‘maquis’. These are open-air restaurants that range from wood-framed kiosks with the diners seated on the ground, to a collection of tables and chairs surrounding rotisserie spits that perfume the air with the smell of grilling chicken or fish.
Marinated fish or chicken, grilled to perfection and served with a vegetable mix are some popular dishes in Abidjan. Nut-based dishes are also common in the Ivory Coast; try the peanut butter stew or ‘Foutou’ (a rich paste made of boiled plantains or yams) with palm oil nut sauce. Other popular side dishes and snacks include Allocco, fried plantain bananas) or Attieke (a couscous-like grain made of ground cassava).
Shopping in the city is almost a national sport, and you can’t travel to Abidjan without visiting one of the local markets. You’ll find clothing, trinkets, leatherware and even musical instruments on sale. If you’re looking for artsy products, you will find in Abidjan a variety of artisanal decorative furniture pieces, unique paintings, and more. Adjame and Treichville markets are considered to be two of the best in the area and remember, haggling is considered a routine part of market shopping in Abidjan.
