Trip Report Gabon - In the Footsteps of Elephants

Jump to last reply

After working off Gabon for some time, we decided to use the opportunity and explore on land for two weeks. With the help of a local travel agent we booked a trip to the Parc de la Lekedi, where we could see orphaned western lowland gorillas and chimpanzees as well as a group of habituated mandrills before heading to the true wilderness of Sette-Cama, just south of Loango National Park. Here we spent nearly a week, going on boat trips and walking for hours in the dense forests and on the beach. We had some amazing encounters with forest elephants and even managed to catch a glimpse of a wild chimpanzee!
