Gabon is without a doubt the pinnacle of rock, surf and estuary fishing. There are very few places where you can target giant tarpon off the beach, and only one where you do it in the company of forest elephants, buffalo and Gorillas. This is the longest and wildest stretch of coastline left on the African continent, and it is hard to put into words how special and unique this destination is.
The Fishing Experience
Gabon has the longest stretch of untouched coastline left on the African continent, and along with a massive estuary system rich in nutrients, offers the avid salt water fishermen the opportunity to experience the thrill of targeting the numerous and unique species of West Africa with both spin and fly tackle. The abundance of large and aggressive game fish, all eager to attack a well fished lure, is complimented by Africa’s most pristine tropical rain forest which creates the back drop to this one of a kind salt water fishing experience.
The camp is on the boundary of the Loango National Park, offering a highly exclusive experience, in which to enjoy both the fishing and wildlife of this untouched venue.
