In Loango National Park, we have created a circuit that allows you to see and experience all the park's highlights and ecosystems. From the lodge, you can venture out into the forest with one of our eco-guides or book a game drive or river safari to experience the diverse habitats and wildlife the area have to offer.

Game drives in a 4x4 pickup are an easy and comfortable way to view the park and see wildlife such as buffalo, elephant, red river hogs and sitatunga. In the rainy season from November to April, you can find large mammals roaming freely on the beach.Enjoy sun downers while on a tour of the lagoon or get up close and personal with forest elephants on the Akaka river.

Gabon is home to one of the largest leatherback populations in the world.

The leatherback and the olive ridley nest here regularly but the green turtle and the hawksbill turtle only nest here on rare occasions.
