About this book

Unexplored Equatorial Guinea finally gets a guidebook! This one-time Spanish colony is one of the smallest countries in continental Africa, both in terms of size and population, and is ranked by the United Nations among the ten least visited countries in the world. From the oil-rich capital of Malabo on the volcanic island of Bioko, set out to explore the jungle interior via the Spanish colonial outpost of Bata, where you'll find pristine national parks teeming with wildlife, incredible white-sand beaches and a wealth of small, traditional communities. Travel here may not always be straightforward, but the rewards are worth it for such a unique experience in the heart of tropical Africa's only Spanish-speaking nation.
This is the only in-depth English language guide to Equatorial Guinea, one of the last truly unexplored corners of sub-Saharan Africa. With first-hand descriptions of all seven provinces (including the islands and the mainland), accommodation, maps and itineraries, plus practical details, guides to security and getting a visa, this is all the information you need whether visiting Bioko on business or trekking Río Muni in search of gorillas.

Excellent
Review by Yolanda Aixela
It's for me a very big pleasure talk about the Bradt Guide that Oscar Scafidi has written about Equatorial Guinea.

As Scafidi said, it is a difficult country, but his book facilitates the travellers to go at the same time that advises what they can do and which are the most interesting places to visit. It's not usual to find out works that explain cultural, historical and political specificities with rigourousity as he did, being this aspect one of the more valuable of this strong and solid work that suggest where to go, better places for lunch or the possible hotels for sleep, at the same time that explain you indiosincrasies of Equatorial Guinea.

This is why I recommend that any visitor/traveler that decide to go to Equatorial Guinea, better read before Scafidi's book who has documented his work with an excelent scientific bibliography. This work is more than a travel guide.
