Equatorial Guinea Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 34%, Equatorial Guinea gets placed into one of two categories depending on the type of person you are. The first is the "too hard basket", as almost everything you do here is fraught with frustration - ranging from a simple passport/visa check, to taking photos (which you need a permit for also, by the way). However, if you're more of a "Globefarer" sort, then Equatorial Guinea might just be that special destination that no one else you know has been to - not to mention that fact that you'll probably have much of the place to yourself while visiting here. Interestingly, there is actually a fair amount of things to see here, both on the mainland and on Bioko Island, which is off the coast. The island experience provides some very nice beaches, where you can observe sea turtles in crystal clear tropical waters and then make the long, strenuous trek up Pico Basilé to gain views for miles around. This provides the perfect segue, as the mainland and Monte Alen National Park is your next stop. This park has a fantastic array of forest wildlife, ranging from gorillas to elephants, as well as more than adequate facilities to make your stay comfortable. Overall, Equatorial Guinea can be challenging, but if you can just stay patient, the rewards may well be worth it in the end.
