Gabon Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 24%, Gabon is something of an oddity on the African continent as it has been at relative peace for the better part of the past two decades. However, for some unknown reason, this hasn't resulted in it becoming a popular travel destination. This is hard to understand, especially since it has miles and miles of unspoilt beaches that are all accessible from the country's surprisingly modern capital of Libreville, where if you squint your eyes just right, you might mistakenly think you're in Miami! But the real draw cards of Gabon are the national parks, which account for a sizeable portion of the country's landmass. This place is absolutely ripe to become the "next big thing" on the African travel radar with such unique features as Lopé National Park, which represents the last remaining stretches of Central African grass savannah. So, if you're looking for a place to combine a beach holiday with that once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience, Gabon could very well offer the perfect option that you've been looking for.
