Guinea 1998. Massif of Mount Nimba.

Located on the borders of Guinea, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire, Mount Nimba rises above the surrounding savannah. Its slopes are covered by dense forest at the foot of grassy mountain pastures. They harbour an especially rich flora and fauna, with endemic species such as the viviparous toad and chimpanzees that use stones as tools.

    In lack of an appropriate stamp from the Ivory Coast showing the Mount Nimba, I have instead shown a similar stamp from Guinea. 

The site is a transboundary property with Guinea and Liberia. No stamps from the area seem issued by the Ivory Coast, so you are kindly referred to the similar property in Guinea (on this site).
