Discover Sénoufo country Ivory Coast

To the north, Korhogo is the gateway to Sénoufo country, a famous ethnic group because of its Poro ritual (a seven year initiation cycle that all the youths have to accomplish) and its sacred dances, during which the famous "panther" men perform. Additionally, Koni is a blacksmith village that is worth a visit. The village of Boundiali is also a good place to discover Sénoufo country and its crafts.
