Fly into the heat-soaked streets of Libreville the bustling capital, before being whisked away, travelling alongside the stunning shores as you head south towards your first destination. Loango National Park perches on the pristine beaches before heading into savannah, forests and mangroves further inland. Walk along the salty surf of the white sand beaches and spot the mythic surfing hippos. Other wildlife to spot includes humpback and killer whales on migration in July to September. Elephants may also appear out of the dense vegetation to schlepp along the sands. Loango provides one of the best wildlife-watching destinations on the planet and with Pelorus guides keeping you at a safe distance you will have access to the prime viewing spots and untouched landscape, of this largely unexplored area.
Seize the day with an early start before dawn to head out on Sette Cama, a massive estuary waterway system, rich in nutrients and abundant in large catch. This is one for the avid saltwater fisherman, with unique species and the beautiful backdrop of the rainforest it creates a wild fishing experience like no other. Species that can be found here include African Threadfin, Cubera, Snapper, Jack Crevalle and Tarpon. You may find the company of buffalo and gorillas from the banks observing your technique, and with a large elephant population settled nearby, you may be lucky enough to observe and be sprayed during bath time.
