This is absolutely a place to visit with family. A lot to discover and when you are tired, you can sit in the "maquis" and order a drink.

It was a nice stroll in the Bingerville Botanic garden, though weather was too hot. Weekdays entrance was negligible 200 CFA. Paths are easy to walk, though locals prefer to ride a car. Unless you are a botanical expert, you won't be able to recognize...More
