Surrounded by the Congo, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon sits on the Atlantic Coast, waiting to be explored. The perfect destination for adventurers looking for something off the beaten track, nature lovers should travel to Gabon. Lying right on the Equator, it is a great destination for people passionate about nature. More than 80% of the country's surface is covered by a dense forest. A very diverse range of fauna can be found in forests, lagoons and swamp lands that border the country. Also, look out for humpback whales that pass along the coasts from June to September.
