With some of the longest stretches of untouched coastline left on the African continent, it is no surprise that Gabon offers sport anglers some of the finest saltwater shore and estuary based game fishing on the planet. Tourette Fishing is pleased to include Gabon into our portfolio of world class African sportfishing destinations, and put this previously prominent destination back on the map for English speaking travellers.
Sette Cama camp, situated on the Ndogo Lagoon at the southern boundary of Loango National Park is a destination like no other. One of Africa’s largest lagoon systems draining into the tropical Atlantic ocean is home to aggressive jacks (whitefin and jack crevalle), giant African threadfin, African cubbera snapper, tarpon, Senegal kob, and Guinean barracuda all eager to attack a well placed lure or bait. Many of these species grow to more than 50 kg. The estuary (by boat) and adjacent beaches provide unparalleled fishing suited to anglers who like to cast artificials or a combination of lures and natural baits and even flies when conditions are right.
As with all destinations in the Tourette Fishing portfolio, Setta Cama Camp in Gabon gets a huge tick in the Wildlife and Wilderness box. On guided walks in the nearby Loango National Park (made famous by National Geographic and BBC.) there is always the chance of seeing chimpanzees, lowland gorillas, red river hogs, forest sitatunga, and various forest duikers and monkey species. Beyond that there is every likelihood of encountering forest elephant and forest buffalo sightings on the beach; it’s worth going just for this last-chance-to-see experience. Bird enthusiasts can also get in a good couple of ‘lifers’ with local specials like rosy bee-eater and African river martin, amongst others.
