Gabon cuisine possesses its own unique characteristics and flavors, so take the time to try as many of the local dishes as you can. Bushbutter and mangoes are widely used ingredients in food here. Follow the hungry locals and try manioc (cassava) or cooked bush meat. Finish off with baked banana, a popular dessert. Try one of the most popular beverages in the Gabon area; coconut milk.
A great way to make friends with the locals is using the local language, so while in Gabon it is valuable to memorize a few simple French expressions and sentences. "Je viens de..." is the French way to say "I come from..." You'll find that learning "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?", which means "What's your name?", can make all the difference.
When it is time to leave Fougamou, use your last Central African francs on last minute keepsakes and say Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
