THE LAST EDEN
In 1998 U.S. scientist Michael Fay completed one of the greatest adventures of our times named THE MEGATRANSECT: He traversed 3200 KM of the rain forested region of the Congo Basin by foot with the help of local trackers. This scientific effort culminated in the creation of 13 National Parks and 4 marine Parks covering 12% of Gabon’s territory.
THE LAST EDEN- 85% of Gabon is covered by jungle and hosts Africa’s largest populations of great apes and forest elephants. Its 800 KM of pristine coastline boasts of large colonies of migratory humpback whales and high density of marine turtles.
