"Abidjan currently a dangerous city" Departement d' Abidjan by PeterVancouver

Departement d' Abidjan Travel Guide: 132 reviews and 331 photos

An exceptionally modern African city until 1999 when certain instability started with the troubles culminating in November 2004 when Côte d'Ivoire forces launched aerial attacks on cities in the north controlled by New Forces.
On November 6, 2004, an aerial attack hit a base of the French military operation Licorne, killing nine soldiers and injuring another 38. France reacted by destroying the Ivorian air force. Since these events, protesters have attacked foreigners. Although the situation is calm and a presidential decree prohibits all demonstrations, the security situation remains tenuous and unstable. The risk of incidents and the frequency of acts of vandalism and of crime remain high throughout the country.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:In the 60's was a very progressive and advanced city
  • Cons:Since 1999 is too unstable to visit with confidence
  • In a nutshell:Sadly more instabilty in Africa
