    Equatorial Guinea has so much to offer, here are some of the things Equatorial Guinea is known for.

    • Bioko Island: Going wide-eyed over the strange combination of little villages with Spanish colonial churches, dense rainforest, rare wildlife and oil platforms.
    • Malabo: Exploring the colonial architecture, bustling markets and buzzing nightlife of this city of contrasts.
    • Monte Alen National Park: Whispering during forest walks in search of gorillas, elephants, chimpanzees and a glorious array of colourful birds and insects.
    • Ureca: Watching marine turtles come ashore to lay their eggs from November to January in this region of forests, waterfalls and deserted beaches.
    • Isla Corisco: Treading softly on the squeaky-clean sand of this undiscovered paradise isle before the crowds descend.
