The Massive Lobe Waterfalls Apart from the beach and tasty seafood visitors always lookout for in Kribi and its environs, there is more to go for in this romantic city. The touristic town also harbours the gorgeous Lobe falls. These overwhelming and energetic waterfalls of the Lobe river gorgeously empty themselves in the Atlantic ocean. Their unique nature resides in the fact that it is one of the rare phenomena in the world, of falls emptying themselves directly into the ocean.
The falls are considered as cultural jewels, as they are of great cultural significance to the Batanga people playing host to many traditional rituals. They form an important site for rituals leading to the enthronement of their chief and also serve as the consecrated spot where the people invoke their water gods and spirits. This lavished pool of water also plays a therapeutic role for them as the sick are submerged in it for healing and purification.
This destination which forms an intriguing combination of natural affluence, sacred cultural arena and mysticism is worth experiencing!
