KUDU offers fantastic turtle walks, where visitors are taken out at night to spot egg-laying turtles. There's no guarantee you'll see any, though some groups see as many as six. Even if you don't see any turtles, the beach is gorgeous, pristine and better than anything in Kribi.

The total fee includes accommodation in a local home, village development fee, meal and tour. A proportion of fees helps locals, many of whom have been trained as guides. For between CFA8000 and CFA115,000 you can arrange local river trips and cultural evenings.

Remember to bring your own water or filter, mosquito net and sleeping sheets as well as good walking shoes.
