Getting there & away
Crossing to Gabon can be done from Cogo/Acalayong to Cocobeach by pirogue , and via Mongomo or Ebebiyin to Oyem and Bitam. Visas for Gabon must be purchased in advance, and be sure to get an exit stamp.
Travellers can always cross to Cameroon at Ebebeyin; the border at Rio Campo (two to three hours from Bata) isn’t always open, so check before you head there. The rules change all the time so you need to be careful.
