Séminaire de Niefang



Niefang town is situated 70km from Bata.It is a junction between Bata-Ebebiyin or Bata-Zvinayong.It is a  town where Gold trading has an important role to play.From Niefang one can visit mount Alèn which is 25km and 1500metres from sea level.On this mount one can admire many varieties of animals. .

Known before the advent of the Pro-Franco regime as Sevilla de Niefang, Niefang which signifies "nie  limit " is the gateway to the Fang Land that stretches over to the east of the Rio Muni.

This town, which the Rio Welle traverses, is important because its position is strategic in relation to the country’s main roads.

Asia and Cuong found along the Rio Welle can be rapidly reached through Niefang to discover the Fang hinterlands.

The construction of a leper-house in the outskirts of the town and the experiments conducted in view of treating Leprosy, including the use of Coloncba Welwitschi Gilg Oil, greatly contributed in reducing Leprosy in the region.

Leprosy is said to have appeared in India around the VIth Century B.C. It then spread to South-east Asia and the Middle-East, and later to Africa. The roman legions, the Saracens and crusader are thought to have reintroduced the disease in Europe where it wrought havoc until the XIIth century. It is now fast disappearing in Europe, though it remains widely spread in Asia and Africa. The germ causing leprosy was discovered by the Norwegian Hansen in 1873.


  It is found in mount Alèn Centre-south province and pricisely in the town of Evinayong.

Between 300 and 1200m high the Monte Alen national parc is one of the Niefang mountainous chains found 50 km away from the Atlantic. Its dense and wet forest covers a surface area of 1600sq.km

The very unconventional nature of the area adds to a series of spectacular Falls above the Uoro and Lana rivers to give the site an exceptionally picturesque landscape.

Monte Alen harbours fauna and flora typical of African dense forests and has a great variety of species, notably plants of the caesalpiniaceous family.

Despite its small surface area, the park is habitat to more than 105 species of mammals, including more than 16 types of primates: 3800 gorillas, 1600 chimpanzees, 2300 species of birds, 65 reptiles, 55 amphibians and 65 aquatic life; and more than 50 workers.

Faced with the alarming forestry exploitation in Equatorial Guinea, and  acknowledging the role of conservation in improving the country’s forestry heritage,  the government adopted a bill


granting an extension of 600sq South wards to Monte Alen, thus linking the park to the Monte Mira national park. Henceforth, 10% of the country’s land is considered endangered zone.(*).
