Culture and wildlife without mass tourism — yet.

Hippos surfing giant waves.  Elephants strolling on sandy beaches. Gorillas, Mandrills, Sea Turtles, Whales and other exotic wildlife.

Gabon Gorilla Trekking and Safari

In 2002 the government of Gabon designated 10% of the country solely for the formation of protected national parks. Loango National Park, the largest of thirteen, is situated in the southwest (just south of the equator) and protects a diverse coastal habitat, including parts of the 220 km² Iguéla Lagoon, the only West/Central-Africa lagoon ecosystem that is protected within a national park. The 1,550 km² Loango National Park is a mosaic of grassland savannas, remote beaches, numerous types of forests, swamps, mangrove habitats and salt marshes, and is one of best examples of Gabon’s incredible biodiversity. The park offers breathtaking panoramas in every direction together with great possibilities to see many of the 200 mammal species and over 600 bird species found in the country. In Loango National Park, there is opportunity to see forest elephants, forest buffalo, and red river hog among other rare wildlife against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s this spectacle that makes the place truly special. The Loango coastline is truly a window into the ancient past, when wild animals visited the oceans edge along the tropical west/central coast of Africa. This phenomenon exists today only in parts of Gabon, hence the moniker, Africa’s Last Eden. Gabon is politically stable but not yet on the mass tourism radar. There is no better time to visit than now.
