This market attracts 160.000 vendors en customers daily, from countries as far as Sudan and the Congo! You can buy second hand clothes, computers, home ware, traditional medicine, you name it. Oqino is divided into sections, but still it’s very chaotic. I found it overwhelming, the market is packed to the roof with people, they are poor and you had to take care of your safety. I ended up at a very local ‘medical center’ after bumping into a pan of boiling soup giving way to a few passing locals ;)
The 'pearl of Africa' is a dream destination for nature lovers. Beautiful volcanoes, vast savannas, great national parks, stunning waterfalls and tropical rainforests. And the most friendly people!
