For a deeper knowledge of the region, take the trip and visit the cities, towns and villages in the area of Okondja.
Local tours are a unique way to discover the special places. So consider signing up for one of the wildlife safaris and wildlife spotting tours.
Local menus are one of the keys to getting to know the area you are in. So head to some of the region's restaurants. Amongst the variety of ingredients commonly used here are bushbutter and mangoes. Don't end your stay in the area without sampling manioc (cassava) or cooked bush meat. Gabon dishes such as baked banana are also a good thing to try. Afterwards, unwind by ordering a refreshing local coconut milk.
Sometimes the difference between a real traveler and a standard tourist is a little appreciation of the local language, so be sure to memorize a number of useful French words and phrases before you head off. Learning how to use some easy sentences, such as "Je viens de...", meaning "I come from...", could make your stay even more pleasant. One more handy example is "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" (What's your name?).
As the sun sets on your journey, load up your gear and bid Gabon a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
