Ile Mbamou Island is in the Republic of Congo. This is a government-owned island that is located about one hour from Brazzaville.
Flora and fauna
To make a booking, you will need to go to Club Nautique (close to the boat ramp at Mami Wata).
The island has cabanas, a swimming area (no pool, only the river), food and drinks for sale, and is very clean and well kept. Not much to do there, so you will need to bring games, entertainment, etc.
There, you can rent one of the following boats:
- 35-foot hollowed out boat (can seat up to 5 people) for US$140 for 5 people
- Modern Fiberglass boat for US$300 for 8 people
Both boats are motorized. The boat usually leaves the Mami Wata area around 11AM and returns around 4PM (schedule is subject to passengers' request).
