Description of Equatorial Guinea holiday, small group adventure

On this small group adventure to Equatorial Guinea you’ll discover a nation spread across both Atlantic islands and mainland territory, where Victorian explorers including Sir Richard Burton and Mary Kingsley once trod a path unbeaten by Western visitors. The country may be tiny (it has a population of less than a million) but it has an incredible variety of landscapes, urban centres and people, from thick rainforest to wild Atlantic coastline to towns and cities infused with a mixture of European, South American and African influences.

Highlights of your trip will include visiting a nature research centre at Moka to learn about the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program (BBPP); exploring the pretty port town of Luba, where the Spanish first landed in 1778; time spent in the coastal village of Ureka, the wettest place in Africa, where turtles come ashore to lay their eggs; and visiting the culturally diverse town of Bata, where Spanish businessmen live alongside Italian engineers, Chinese construction workers, Middle Eastern hoteliers and traders from across the continent.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Equatorial Guinea holiday, small group adventure

Environment

When travelling in a country such as Equatorial Guinea that has so few if any tourists, there is an additional responsibility on us as a company and on our clients visiting the country to do everything possible to minimise our impact.

We do everything possible to reduce our waste while travelling, using local cafes and restaurants. We also work extremely closely with our locally owned suppliers to inform and educate their staff about a range of issues, including litter and waste disposal, and the recycling of material. Clients are advised to bring their own water bottles rather than purchase plastic.

Wherever possible we use environmentally friendly local accommodation. If this is not possible we make every effort to alert the management of the accommodation in question to ways of improving their service with the environment in mind.

The last few days of the tour will focus on Bioko Sur, the protected jungle area which covers the southern portion of the island. We visit a team of conservationists and learn about their work protecting the rare and endemic primates of Bioko. We also pay a visit to the turtle nesting sites of Ureka, and enjoy the waterfall that cascades directly onto the black volcanic beach.

Community

Our very small groups and limited departures in Equatorial Guinea means that our impact – both cultural and environmental – on the areas that we visit is small and truly sustainable. We are investing in the future, in the belief that along with our local colleagues we can create sustainable social benefits.

Our suppliers in Equatorial Guinea are small and locally owned, meaning that the income remains within the country and creates a real economic contribution. This is particularly true when we visit Corisco. Situated in the Rio Muni Estuary, this tiny island is home to the Benga people who rarely see visitors.

All of our trips include visits to local markets, craft shops and fairs, and you will be surprised by the choice on offer when it comes to eating and drinking, especially in Malabo. As well as being good for the local economy this gives travellers to the country a real feel for the life and culture of Equatorial Guinea
