Before You Go

Predeparture Information

Keep in mind that you are in Africa. Standards and services should not be compared with first world countries. You came here to get away from all that – to experience Africa as it really is. The unexpected is included in your tour – free of charge!

We will provide you with as much information about our tours as possible but please feel free to contact us directly if there is anything specific at all that you’d like more information on.

Travel Health and Safety

We strongly advise that you contact your local travel clinic or doctor well in advance of traveling as you may well need vaccinations prior to travel. Gabon require a compulsory yellow fever vaccination certificate for entry. Failure to provide one may result in a denied entry.

On tour, the guide has authority at all times and this includes decisions regarding the safety of our guests so It is important that you inform us of any medical conditions or prescription drugs that you are taking as we are sometimes 100km or more from the nearest medical assistance.


Our trips have a variety of accommodations, depending on the location or the style of adventure you want. Some holidays are graded superior, with a little extra luxury, and some contain more basic accommodations.  Whatever the level, we carefully select accommodations to ensure you receive a friendly welcome and that your stay is a comfortable, authentic experience.

Most tours are in the comfortable bushcamps, hotels including friendly guest houses. No matter what the type of accommodations, they will always be chosen for charm, cleanliness, and those special touches that allows all your senses to be overwhelmed by the natural wonder and capture the essence of Gabon.

What To Pack

Your luggage is limited to one backpack and one daypack weighing no more than 20kg. As a general rule, if you cannot lift your own luggage, you’ve got too much stuff! Most people make the mistake of bringing too many clothes on tour, less is more in this instance.

Living Like a Local

We hope that traveling to more remote areas to meet the local’s lifestyle broadens your adventure by going beyond tourist activities to enjoy travel experiences that are truly authentic and deeply immersive, resulting in unforgettable memories.
