Mekambo Vacation Packages
To really understand the Gabon way of life, take your adventures a bit further afield and discover the Mekambo's surrounding area.
If you spend much of your time working, the perfect holiday often means finding good places to relax. When it's time to de-stress, follow the lead of the locals and try shore fishing or wildlife watching.
Make sure you let your tastebuds loose in Gabon's cafés and restaurants. Regular ingredients in this area are bushbutter and mangoes. Local favorite specialties include manioc (cassava) and cooked bush meat, but there are many other mouthwatering meal options on the menu. To end your local dining experience, try baked banana. Visitors who are not used to drinking alcoholic drinks will can order coconut milk, a beloved drink in Gabon.
Taking the time to memorize some useful words and phrases in the local tongue separates the enlightened travelers from the tourist hordes. "Je viens de..." means "I come from..." "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" ("What's your name?") is also useful.
At the end of your time in Mekambo, spend the last of your Central African francs on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell).
