Okoyo is situated about 190 miles (306 kilometers) north of Brazzaville, the country's capital.
For a real taste of the Republic of the Congo, grab a vehicle and visit the cities, towns and villages around Okoyo. Boundji, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southwest, and Ewo, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the southeast of Okoyo are also worth checking out.
The most rewarding places for tourists to visit when they arrive in a new destination are the ones that best illustrate the local culture. Don't skip the Republic of the Congo's palaces.
If you enjoy the water, plan to enjoy some watersports. Wind surfing is a common pastime and another great outdoor sport is fishing. Tapping into local knowledge is a great way for visitors to familiarise themselves a new place and its people. So why not take one of the informative wildlife safaris, wildlife spotting tours and guided nature walks.
For many, traveling is as much about eating and drinking as it is about taking photos of sights so make the effort to check out the food here. You'll find that cassava and bushmeat are commonly used elements of typical local dishes. Why not try fufu (sticky cassava flour dough) or cooked shrimps? Both dishes are a favorite choice in this region. End with fruit salad, a popular dessert. Mango juice is a popular beverage in this area.
When your time is up in Okoyo, use the last of your Central African francs on last minute keepsakes for the folks at home and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
