Gabon Wildlife Holidays
Our wildlife holidays, wildlife tours and safaris of Gabon are listed below:
Gabon is one of the last homes of vast expanses of unexplored tropical wilderness in the heart of Africa. Much of this forest has remained out of reach and the wildlife largely untouched from tourism. The vast wealth and and variety of flora and wildlife including forest elephants, lowland gorillas, chimpanzees and mandrills is some of the best in the world. Gabon is also a birding paradise and so whatever your interest you will be stunned by the array on offer in Gabon.
Known as the ‘Eden of Africa’ Gabon boasts an impressive 11.25% of the country proclaimed as national parkland and protected forest. Coupled with this impressive amount of forest the country is also very little-visited by tourists; thus making Gabon the perfect location for experienced African travelers and those in search of a true wilderness experience.
Among the wealth of wildlife to find in Gabon there are some wonderful mammal watching highlights, including mandrills, forest elephants, giant pangolins, lowland gorillas, red river hogs, African manatees and many other which can only be found in Central Africa. Along with mammal like there is a huge abundance of birdlife, Gabon is known to have over 750 species of birds recorded, including the rare and highly sought after African river martin which can be seen around rivers and lagoons,.
Our Gabon mammal watching tour focuses on mandrills and gorillas as these are two of the key species known from Gabon and also habituated specifically for research and tourism. We spend time in the presence of these incredible primates on our trips to Gabon and these trips to the primates are conducted with the expertise of primate researchers.
Join one of our wildlife tours to Gabon and you can spend time on the beach watching forest elephants, lowland gorillas and possibly also watch hippos surfing in the sea. Gabon truly is one of the best and unique wildlife watching safari destinations in the world.
