Experience Gabon: what to see, what to do
Gabon is one of the wealthiest countries in Africa, thanks to its small population and rich mineral and oil reserves. There’s plenty to see here, with remarkable, pristine rain forests and an amazing biodiversity. Let’s go!
Essentials in Gabon
Libreville: The best part of Libreville is without a doubt the seafront where you can see young and old gather to hang out and walk along the ocean. The city Aboretum is something spectacular as well, with thousands of local trees.
Loango National Park: Located right along the Atlantic Coast, this park includes more than 100 kilometres of pristine, white-sand beaches next to rain forests. It’s likely you’ll run into monkeys on the beach and the surrounding forests are home to elephants, leopards and gorillas.
Banteke Plateau National Park: This savannah is criss-crossed by rivers which can only be crossed via rope bridges (adventurers, this one’s for you!). There’s a good chance to spot forest elephants, buffalo and antelope in this park.
