A destination little known to the western world, a luxury holiday to Gabon promises a more personalised and rewarding safari experience. On guided adventures through its national parks, track down mighty wildlife like lowland gorilla, red river hog, forest elephant and one of the most celebrated species of primate, the mandrill. As you venture to the coast of Gabon, experience the beauty of the marine world. Loango National Park is one of the finest destinations to witness humpback whales breaching the water, just metres from the boat.

Best Time to Visit
Gabon has an equatorial climate, with an average daily temperature of 26˚C year-round. For optimal wildlife spotting including elephants, buffalos, hippos, gorillas, and humpback whales, the dry season of May – September is the best time to visit, with July and August being the driest months. There is also a mini dry season from December to January so this would be an ideal time to visit if you wanted a winter sun holiday.
A luxury holiday to Gabon for those who love unspoilt nature and native wildlife, wouldn’t be complete without a safari expedition deep into the country’s major national parks – Loango and Pongara. During your stay in Loango, you will have the opportunity to take part in guided gorilla trekking and forest elephant spotting on foot. Whilst in Pongara National Park, embark on whale watching trips, night-time excursions to view the sea turtles and private mangrove safaris.
