Gabon Itinerary Customized and administered by CTT below - Luxury Category Safari - Value Rate


During your stay in Gabon “Lodge Hopping,” you can move from one Lodge to another and live an extraordinary adventure. 

*During the rainy season we insist on visiting the North Park, Louri lagoon and beach in search of elephants and buffalo on the beach.

Loango National Park is located on the west side of Gabon, south of Port-Gentil. It has an area of 1600 km2 and is protected to the west by the Atlantic Ocean and to the east by the Lagoon Iguéla and impenetrable forest.

This site does not suffer destruction or poaching and the nature nearby remains unchanged for twenty or thirty thousand years ago. Thus, in the Loango National Park, you travel backwards in time...

All Loango Safaris consists of a main lodge and four satellites in Lodges in the park.


Here is what Arthur Scheuer wrote about the Loango Lodge:

"There is more in the woods than in books," said Saint Bernard. After a few days at Loango Lodge, the words of the Cistercian reasoned strong in me. Loango is an exceptional place. By discovering the colorful flowers, the wooden bungalows, the lagoon, and in the distance, the sounds of the sea, no one, not even the greatest traveler, can not spare a few minutes of astonishment. The nature reserve, a few dozen meters on the opposite shore, home to a virgin wilderness as there 30,000 years ago.

Loango is a haven, a cocoon of rare sweetness in which we like to forget the shadows of everyday life. Early morning, a soft white light pierces the vegetation in the glass bungalows. We take the time to live, breathe, listen, see. We fish through the afternoon, and the fish is eaten in the evening. A slight breeze accompanied the canoes around the village. At night, we returned to our air-conditioned and comfortable bungalow. We fall asleep instantly. We get up and we go to sleep at our own pace, which, like magic, is now also that of the forest. Mysteries...order a whiskey dry under the pagoda. The sun sets over the lagoon, coloring the sky pink and purple. There for a lifetime if I could, Loango.

-Arthur Scheuer, Famous Travel Writer, on Loango 2014.
