1478221721_2c9f01c986_o
After breakfast enjoy a full day tour of Malabo. Malabo, the capital city of Equatorial Guinea is located at the northern end of the island of Bioko. First colonized by the Portuguese in 1494, over the centuries the island has frequently changed hands between the British and Spanish until independence in 1968. This colonial history is easily visible in the old colonial architecture, characteristic by thick walls, wrought-iron work, and stylish shutters and blinds. Note the Spanish tiling in the cathedral square.
Another local attraction worth visiting is the Spanish-Equatorial Guinean Cultural Center. After visiting there you can walk out onto the peninsula where the decaying Hotel Bahia sits; take in the beautiful island scenery afforded by Malabo. Built around a natural harbor that was once the crater of an ancient volcano, it is truly unique. Malabo has a languid, sleepy feel that will lure you into beach style relaxation.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast

Day 3: MALABO AND VICINITY

After breakfast visit the pristine crater lakes of Lago Loreto and Lago Biao in Northern Bioko. Lago Biao is known for little egrets and dabchicks (little grebes) that are found around the lake as well as palm nut vultures, turacos, and the spectacular blue plantain-eaters that are often seen on the walk to the crater. The region is also known to host several species of monkeys, including both the black Colobus and the red-eared guenon. Later visit nearby cascades where three separate branches of the Iladyi River plunge over the edge of a 250 m (800 ft.) canyon. As you stand in moss-draped forest at the top of the largest waterfall, you look out across undisturbed forest to the other cascades. The region is also an important agricultural center, providing the cool climate and rich volcanic soil required for the cultivation of a variety of fruits and vegetables. This evening return to your hotel in Malabo.
