Best Places to Visit in Gabon

Some have dubbed it "the last Eden on Earth," and once you've been there, you'll understand why.

You'll find yourself in a vast and largely untouched paradise of white sand beaches, deep forests, wild rivers, and stunning landscapes once you leave Gabon's capital city, the sole real city. To preserve this final Eden, ten percent of the country was designated as protected area in 2003, and thirteen national parks were established.

Gabon is unusual among its African neighbors in the tropical region. It enjoys peace and stability. It's also the area's most forward-thinking and tourist-friendly resort. However, due to the absolute lack of infrastructure, non-existent roads, and unpredictable transit choices, most travelers choose to deal with a travel agency on the ground.

It's a true journey ready to seize your heart and make you fall in love.
