  • When there's no traffic jams this little journey extension road and lets go through a picturesque path. She has nothing, so far, of subjugating.

  • Convenient to reach the West Coast but twisting road. Making day to admire the lush vegetation, beware danger at night...

  • It is a must when you want to reach low Earth (Pointe Noire) from the airport. The road is winding and it is directly bathed in the dense vegetation of Base land: beautiful! Several views are available on this road and take the time to stop at the various waterfalls (jump of the crack, which is difficult to access) and waterfall crayfish
