Where to go

Gabon’s noteworthy spots include Lopé National Park, Loango National Park, Akanda National Park, Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon, Batéké Plateau National Park, Pointe-Denis Beach, Palais Presidentiel, Ekwata Beach, Marche du Mont-Bouet, and L’Eglise St-Michel Libreville. Lopé National Park within central Gabon, the park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site designated as of 2007. The park is mostly rain forest; the northern parts of the area have the last green savannah parts that were created in Central Africa during the last Ice Age, around 15,000 years ago. Within the park is a small research station, called Mikongo, which is run by the Zoological Society London. Also within the park are infrastructure that can cater to tourists within the Mikongo base, including numerous chalets, and an open air dining room, close to the rainforest which can be found just around five metres away. Lopé National Park also hosts CEDAMM Training Centre, an international conservation education centre run by Wildlife Conservation Society. Another national park within Gabon is the Batéké Plateau National Park. The park is on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative list as of 2005.
