Tai National Park access

Taï National Park access

To reach Taï or Djouroutou, you absolutely need a 4×4. During the wet season (from May to October), it is recommended to have a 4×4 car high enough to reach Djouroutou.

The site of Taï
To access to the ecotourism site of Taï by road from Abidjan, we advise you to go over the North all year long.
There are two possibilities:
1- From Abidjan, you can take the highway to Yamoussoukro, then the national road to Bouaflé, Dalao, Duékoué to reach Guiglo (it takes around 8h).
2- Or from Abidjan, on the northern highway, you could take the way out to Tiassalé and then Divo, Gagnoa, Issia, Duékoué to Guiglo (it takes around 8h). As soon as you reach Guiglo, you will have to go through the bush path to reach Taï (it takes 3h).

The site of Djouroutou
To access to the ecotourism site of Djouroutou by road from Abidjan, we advise you to go over the South all year long. Go through Tiassalé – Gagnoa – Soubré – San Pedro (it takes around 8h). Then go through San Pedro to Tabou  and once in Tabou, you will take a path of bush leading to Djouroutou.
Note that it is necessary to count 2 days trip from Abidjan (make a stop for the night in San Pedro or Grand Bereby). It is also possible to fly from Abidjan to San Pedro and then rent a vehicle on site to reach Djouroutou.
The journey time from San Pedro to Djouroutou is approximately 6 hours.
