Introduction

Located northwest of the continental zone Bioko Island is the main island of Equatorial Guinea. The country’s capital Malabo is situated in the north part of the island.

Day 2:

  • Quiet breakfast to gather strength, our first-day trip is to Luba, a coastal town south of Malabo. We will take you to the beautiful bay where Count Arjelejos took possession of the island in the name of Spain in 1778.
  • If you are Looking for hidden beaches? Here we have them; we will stop at Arena Blanca beach, the perfect meeting weekend spot for Malabo’s locals.
  •  We will also visit the largest waterfalls in the country with a drop of more than 200 meters! The famous Ilachi waterfalls.
  • We will then return to Malabo and for free time to explore the city.

Day 3:

  • Do you want to visit the highest point on the island? Then let us check out Basilé peak, three thousand meters above sea level. Today we will take you to the town; we will have a panoramic view of the city of Malabo and Mount Cameroon.

  • Once relaxed, we will return to the city of Malabo and enjoy a free restful afternoon.

Day 4:

  • Have you ever wondered how we make the most delicious chocolate? Finca de Sampaka has been cultivating cocoa traditionally since 1906; we will try the various chocolate tablets created for different palates, from the sweetest to the bitterest taste.
  • The movie “Palm trees in the snow” was partly filmed here in Finca Sampaka. If you like chocolate, you could take it as a souvenir.
  • The next visit will be to the seafront! And then Malabo’s National Park will be next, where we will enjoy and a multitude of various local trees and art from Guinean authors.
  • The rest of the day off, we will leave you to explore the park on your own or learn the city’s secrets.

Day 5:

  • After breakfast, we take you to the most mystical and “haunted” place on Bioko Island, Lake Biao (Lake Moka), the cradle of the Bubi people. What happens to an inactive volcano when it rains? It is flooded and offers us spectacular views of both the fauna and the virgin flora.
  • After the walk, we will return to Malabo and let you rest the rest of the day; tomorrow, it promises to be busy.

  • Do you want real adventure? Today is the day, Ureka is the place to be. Magnificent walk along a virgin beach. Different rivers will cross while hearing the sounds of nature spawned with giant tortoises (depending on the dates).

Rumbo Malabo es una agencia profesional y 100 % confiable, lo que se agradece sobre todo en un país donde viajar no es tan sencillo y donde hay que dejar muchas gestiones en manos de agentes locales. Ellos se encargan de facilitar todos los trámites necesarios, de velar por tu comodidad y seguridad y de ofrecerte paquetes con los que conocer la Guinea real: sus calles, su naturaleza, su gente. A veces uno piensa que se va a encontrar con los típicos "todo incluido" de resort de Punta Cana en los que acabas enjaulado y viendo lo que te enseñan los del hotel. Todo lo contrario pasa con esta agencia, especializada en turismo sostenible y que de verdad te lleva a conocer la isla de Bioko como si fueras un habitante más.

I have travelled to Equatorial Guinea with this company and had great assistance and service all the time. The company answers very quickly, provides help to get the Visa, sorted all my papers to go through immigration and quarantine. I visited between the 22nd and 28th of November 2021, great service, recommended.

I really enjoyed the tour of Camasa Finca Sampaka with Rumbo Malabo. The group was small which made the experience even better. Tours like this are important for nationals and tourists so we can understand the history of our country and see what we have to offer to ourselves and possibly the rest of the world. Can't wait for the next excursion!
