Ivory Coast Casino & Gambling Overview
Gambling in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast )
Ivory Coast or Côte d'Ivoire is a West African country located on the Gulf of Guinea. The country boasts magnificent beach resorts and a legacy of French colonial architecture. Just north of the business district in the nation's major urban center and de facto capital of Abidjan, visitors will find Banco National Park. The Park is a rain forest preserve and offers day hikes on maintained trails. The 116 square mile park was established in 1953.
There are four natural regions that make up the country. The elevation rises constantly as you venture away from the 40-mile wide strip of coastal land. Lagoons are found along the eastern portion of the coastline. There is an equatorial forest that once spanned some 125 miles but has since been decimated and now is much smaller. East of this zone is a cultivated forest zone which has been deforested of native flora to make way for plantations, this is most readily seen near the border with Ghana.
Beyond the coast, the most interesting region is the northern high savanna at about 1,000 feet in elevation. It is in this sparsely populated area that visitors will find the 4,500 square mile Komoé National Park, or Parc National de la Komoé in French. It was founded as a game preserve in 1953. The park holds the country's biggest populations and concentration of wildlife including hippopotamuses, lions, antelopes, monkeys, and other indigenous animals.
