Gabon – short description:

Gabon is situated on the West Coast of Central Africa, bordered by Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and the Congo. The coast runs along 800km facing the Atlantic Ocean and offers magnificent sandy beaches dotted with palm trees, lagoons and estuaries.

With Libreville as its capital the country boast lush tropical vegetation covering most of the interior land, with some parts of savannah. The population speaks French and the major African language is Fang, including several other different dialects.

There are numerous rivers along which settlements have cropped up, although most of the population lives in the villages along the coast and not many actually live in the main cities as Libreville, Port Gentil, Moanda amongst others, for they prefer a more traditional lifestyle.

The region of the Bateke Plateau is a breathtaking site with savannah land, forests, rivers and plenty of wildlife, from elephants to gorillas, panthers, sitatunga to name a few. The largest national park for wildlife spotting is the Lopé-Okanda Reserve where practically all mammal species can be found as well as 350 different species of birds.

The sprawling beaches of the Atlantic Coast are breathtaking, with the deserted beaches of Pointe Denis and Ekwata or those offering water sports such as Mayumba and Cap Estérias, where anything from scuba diving to kayaking can be found. Whale watching is also popular from July to September, where more than 3,000 humpback whales can be spotted.

Gabon offers an equatorial climate with a high rate of humidity, the rainy season going from October to May and the dry one from June to August.

The people from Gabon are called Gabonese.
