Thanks to Ondimba’s foresight, Gabon is now one of the Africa’s most precious and protected havens for wildlife, home to western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees, hippo, elephant, buffalo, crocodile, antelope, manatees and the biggest mandrill troupes in the world – as well as 600 species of birds. It also has one of the world’s largest concentrations of whales and dolphins. Despite these outstanding ecotourism credentials and the country’s long-standing political stability, Gabon still has incredibly low numbers of visitors. Tourism is in its infancy here, enabling visitors to enjoy a truly wild natural environment.
We truly believe that Gabon has the potential to become one of the world’s top ecotourism destinations. The array of wildlife in this central African country is quite spectacular – as well as being well-protected in more than 26,000 km² of parkland.
