Ivindo National Park

Practically untouched by tourism and hidden at the very heart of the country, this vast and inaccessible park is home to some of Gabon’s finest primary forest.

The Ivindo River winds its way through the park, offering access, as well as a succession of waterfalls. The largest of these are the spectacular Koungou Falls, which featured in the recent Tarzan movie.

Langoue Bai

The dense forest that carpets Ivindo forms part of a jungle ecosystem that extends east, all the way across both Congos. The park first gained recognition during conservationist Mike Fay’s MegaTransect expedition, when he rediscovered Langoue Bai – a dramatic opening in the forest that attracts a remarkable number of jungle species and of huge ecological importance.

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

“Sweat bees tickle the skin on my forearms. The perspiration lies there in beads, feeding their thirst. My heart is still pumping in my chest from the walk, at odds with the stillness surrounding me. The humidity presses on me, but it is the sense of expectation that weighs heavier upon my tired body.”

Bridget Cohen

Aged five and with my Curious George toy safely tucked under my arm, I set off with my family to travel around Europe in an orange VW minibus. Looking back on the adventures we had along the way, I now know that this was where my love for travel and exploring began.

Chris Johnston

25 years ago, my first trip to Africa took on a life of its own. I planned for three months, I stayed for two years. Whilst there, I was mistaken for a priest, attacked by sharks and arrested. Yet the countless, clattering journeys opened my eyes to the beauty of the landscapes and the grace of the people. My recent trips are undoubtedly more comfortable, but the welcome is as warm as ever and the best experiences are still those I never see coming.
