Ok, I am a bit obsessed with this part of Africa, unfortunately I have never been further south than Tunisia and not further north than South Africa.
So, by a coincidence, while I was browsing the Iberia website today, I noticed Western Sahara and Equatorial Guinea. A city in Western Sahara is served via Las Palmas and Malabo is served via Madrid, looks interesting for me as a German resident because I can get easily to MAD
by Iberia ir the classic "holiday airlines", so why not continue from there to a few very exoric countries?.
Equatorial Guinea is the only Spanish speaking country in Africa and a pretty exotic country, I would like to visit it. Is there anything you can do there, is it worth (and possible) to take a boat to the main-land or is it enough to spend two days at Malabo and around? A lot of Americans seem to live there since the "oil boom", can you expect a decent nightlife in Malabo since a lot of foreigners are around?
Furthermore, Western Sahara doesn't even seem to be an official country. I searched the website of the German Foreign Ministry for "West Sahara" but I got no results, so I guess it is still occupied by Morroco. Is that right and does anyone have any information about visa regulations?
Please enlighten me about these countries a bit. If you have any other travel tips/reports regarding West Africa, feel free to share them here. I am also interested in any other country there!
