Africa - Gabon (Chapter)
This is the Gabon chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
Gabon enjoys both peace and stability, while its superb wildlife makes it an increasingly popular place for safaris. But tourism here remains largely DIY, with almost total lack of reliable infrastructure. Outside cosmopolitan Libreville, Gabon is an undiscovered wonderland of thick jungle, white-sand beaches, rushing rivers and ethereal landscapes.
