Johannesburg - The Ivory Coast's national team arrived in South Africa on Monday from Paris ahead of the Nelson Mandela Challenge against the Bafana Bafana on November 12.

The West African delegation led by Ivory Coast FA chairman Augustin Sidy Diallo was welcomed at the OR Tambo Airport here by the South African Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani.

After a brief stopover, the team continued to Port Elizabeth, setting up camp at the Radisson Blu Hotels. Coach Francois Zahoui and his squad, short of skipper Didier Drogba, who was rested after a surgery, will have a fitness session on Thursday night at the stadium of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, SuperSport.com’s source travelling with the group confirmed.

The team will hold only one training session which is scheduled for Friday mid-morning at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium - the venue of the Challenge.

The Ivory Coast will use the encounter as part of preparations for the 2012 African Cup of Nations, with a friendly against Senegal slated for November 15.
