Gabon: What to Expect / Highlights
Rich Wildlife and Culture
Tropical forests little touched by humans; 13 newly created National Parks; up to 20 percent indigenous species; elephants on white sand beaches, breaching humpback whales, antelopes, buffaloes and elephants roaming the grasslands; trees filled with monkeys, baboons, toucans and African parrots
Although endangered in most other parts of Africa, they are abundant in Gabon's dense forests
Strange mangroves of the coast to the spectacular savannahs of the Bateke Plateau
Because Gabon has just recently opened up to tourism due to the newly created parks it is not yet on the "tourist radar map".
