Bioko Loop

Description:

We travel to Bioko Sur, the protected jungle area which covers the southern portion of the island. First we head for Moka via the town of Riaba crossing the impressive Puente Cope bridge along the way. In Moka we'll visit the village and the nature research centre and learn about the work of the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program. Moka is the nerve center of the Bubi culture. Moka gets its name from a king who ruled the island in the nineteenth century and resided in Riaba. Then we'll return to Malabo via the village of Batete, called Maria Cristina by the Spaniards. It is situated in the upper part of the southern massif. Its main attraction is a church that dominates the region and is among the rare religious buildings in the world built in wood. During the walk through the village we will see different drying cocoa. Then we'll visit the town of Luba on the west coast, a picturesque port town that played an important role in the colonial history of this nation. It was here in 1778 that the Spanish first landed, Count of Arjelejos, and laid claim to the island (a monument commemorates this date at the northern end of town).
