Early morning, transfer to Diyanga village (2 hours).
This trip will take you to the Diyanga Village in the dense Equatorial Forest with ample opportunities to sight a variety of animals and meet the native forest people: the Pygmies, who are Gabon's first inhabitants. This is an itinerary that combines adventure, scenery, discovery, hiking and culture. Journeying through this community leaves guests with an appreciation for the lives of the Baka ancestors.
The Baka people are legendary. They excel in tracking animals; imitating their sounds in order to attract and hunt them. They are also renowned for their pharmacopoeia, a result of their foraging way of life. An immersive experience with this community is considered a sacred journey, for in learning their ways, you get to know yourself better. Visiting guests will sleep under huts or in mud houses with no electricity. Lights are provided from petrol lamps and guests will clean and bath in the local safe river.
Beyond the cultural immersion, Diyanga and its neighbouring villages provide other activities and attractions such as wildlife sightings (gorillas, elephants, mandrills, chimpanzees and many others), traditional dance vigil, raffia weaving, crossbow hunting, visiting caves, etc.
