02 Days and a night to experience agritourism at the SOCAPALM plantations at Mbongo and enjoy nautical pleasures in Kribi
This tour will take you to an agro-industrial centre where you shall observe the labourers’ camps and appreciate the fraternal coexisting of the workers. It shall give youan excellent opportunity to swim and relax along the exotic golden beaches of Cameroon and to visit with euphoria a unique feature of global geography, the Lobe falls that empties itself directly into the ocean.
Driving from Yaounde to Boumnyebel, home village of national hero and Martyr Ruben Um Nyobe, you will notice that the streets are calling with traders proposing varieties of foodstuff to travellers such as the famous gizzards, ‘’bitter kola’’, coconuts and ‘’mutoumba’’. This cry, to a sleeping traveller is an indicator that one is already at Boumnyebel. An hour of drive will take you to Pouma, home town of the famous artist BLACK ROGERS which announces itself by the presence of clayish granite grounding stones.
Arriving Edea, the electricity city of Cameroon, you shall be able to observe the electricity turbines in the dams in the River Sanaga as well as the isolated Aluminiumcompany and the statutes of the gods and goddessesover hanging the Japoma Bridge also known as the Edea German Bridge, a railway bridge over the Sanaga River. The steel arch of the bridge was designed and built by the Gutehoffnungshütte company, assembled and tested in Germany before being delivered to Cameroon in 1911. It measures 160m in length, and was the largest in Africa at the time of erection. The bridge was the only passage point over the Sanaga River for trains, vehicles and pedestrians until the early 80s. It is now used as a footpath and cycle track.
At the SOCAPALM plantation at Mbongo or again the Dizangue SAFACAMplantation, you shall visit the workers’ camps, the oil palm plantations and the oil palm refinery to see large scale industrial oil palm production.
You shall enter the best geteways into the relaxing pleasures of water through the angelic beaches of Kribi, where you shall sleep at the sea side resort hotel and be tempted to taste the warm barbecues and the bonfires. The aroma at the exotic beach restaurants is pleasant, and the urge to grab a bite is irresistible. This tour shall also take you to the Lobe falls, the unique one in the world that ejects its waters directly into the ocean, in this case, the Atlantic Ocean. At the shores equally, you shall be seduced by the aroma of the bonfires as you shall be able to taste roasted crabs, grayfish and fish as you make a return trip. Arriving Yaounde, you shall be able to conclude as Marcel Praust that “A true voyage of discovery is not about looking for new landscapes, but about having new eyes”.
