Monte Alen National Park in detail

Flights & getting there

The park lies south of Bata along an excellent road. The park centre (which is not in operation), with its hotel, eco-museum and staff accommodation, is 91km from Bata. It's best to hire your own vehicle to get to the park to transport all your equipment, food and water. If, however, you decide to take public transport, head for the taxi rank at Mercado 5 (5km from the city centre) in Colombo, Bata. Expect to pay about CFA12,000 to the park entrance.
