First inhabited by the Pygmy tribes – smaller than average humans, around five feet tall and widely discussed in Greek myth – Gabon’s coast has been home to many rainforest peoples. Perched at the edge of the Atlantic coast in Port Gentil, Le Méridien Mandji offers spectacular views of rippling waters, and the fronds of tall trees silhouetted against a cloudless sky in the hotel’s spacious, delightful garden.
