is situated 17km from Mongomo towards the road
Very close to Gabon which is situated at the
other side of Rio Kie, Mongomo is situated in the heart of the great
equatorial forest and in the heart of the Fang tribe.
The Fangs were the first people to start
penetrating the forest of Central Africa as early as the 12th
These were originally nomatic breeders who later
changed their way of life and became settled farmers and hunters
after having cleared the forest and opened clearings for setting up
villages and plantations.
The Fang are great wood sculptors and have considerably
enriched the heritage of great museums in the world with
their masks and particularly small statues
on pedestal which
serve for ancestral worship. Unfortunately, with Christianity
replacing animistic rites, traditional sculptors have disappeared
