Kribi Things to Do

  • Kribi port

    Kribi port isn’t the same as in ancient times, a lot of the activities are transported to the Douala port. It is the ideal place to rent a boat for big-game fishing in the Bay of Biafra. You also find good food stalls where the catch of the day is prepared at the spot.

    Many people along the coastline in Kribi are fishermen. They have a pirogue made of large lumber trunks. Sometimes they stay in sea for two days, before they sell their catch at the local fish market near the port.

  • UNDERCURRENT

    Watch out for the undercurrent when you step into the sea for a swim. First gain information by the locals before going into the sea for a refreshing dip.

  • Don't walk on the beach after dark

    Walking around at night CAN be dangerous. A Belgian tourist once was killed on the beaches around “Tara Plage” for its watch and wallet. It probably isn’t always like that, but you’d better watch out at night even in the city centre.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Where there are tourists there are souvenier stalls. Nothing wrong with that, but when they’re selling animal related products such as ivory tusks, animal skins or tortoise shields there is something wrong. Most of the products are forbidden by law, don’t buy them so the businessmen don’t gain from it.

    When you stay in Kribi it won’t take long to reach Campo Ma’an NP in Campo. It is a dirt road and during the rainy season it can be very muddy.
    Campo Ma’an named after the two main rivers is a national park under the supervision of WWF in the Southwest of Cameroon near the town of Campo. With a surface of +/- 2500 km² rainforest and an abundance of wildlife such as:
    -forest elephants
    -gorillas
    -bongos
    -crocodiles
    -chimpanzees
    -vipers
    And so on
    It is located next to Equatorial Guinea and ready to receive visitors from all over the world. They have relatively new eco lodges on the beaches where turtles come to lay their eggs.
