Equatorial Guinea Info

Capital City: Malabo
Equatorial Guinea is a small country in Central Africa, divided into two parts, the mainland and the islands. A former Spanish colony, it borders Cameroon and Gabon. This country is one of the largest oil producing countries in Sub-Sahara, behind Angola and Nigeria. Since the discovery, the country has flown into economic stardom, but this country remains one of the most corrupt countries in the world, and it is very common to see officials asking for bribes around the corners of the country.

Climate

Equatorial Guinea has two distinctive and very pronounced seasons: rainy and dry seasons. April to October are the wettest months of the year, and December to March are the driest.

People

The major ethnic groups are the Fang of the mainland and the Bubi of Bioko Island.

Holidays

Equatorial Guinea recognizes the major Christian holidays. October 12 is Independence Day.
