Hello I am travelling to Gabon in December and will stay for one month as an american. I need to get a Gabon tourist visa and so I want to get a hotel reservation since that is what is required. Does anyone know if purchasing a hotel reservation for just one night is good enough to get a visa along with all the other required information? Or do I need to prove where I will stay for the duration of my trip? Also does anyone have experience with booking a hotel in Libreville iand then…
I am planning to travel gabon for 8 days at the end of November. This is the tail end of the short wet season.
I am hoping to track mandrills in Lope or ledeki or Lekedi parks and visit Loango park on the coast. I plan to stay only a few nights at each park and then I estimate the rest of my time will be spent traveling to and from.
Can anyone recommend a route to Loango via bus, boat for the independent traveler?
Also, can anyone recommend a route to Lope, and Ledeki/lekedi parks via bus…
I am planning to visit gabon for 8 days at the end of November.
I understand Lope national Park is good in the dry season to see mandrills but maybe not in November and also the biologists that used to track them have ceased working in Lope. Can anyone confirm this?
I also understand there might be another park Ledeki or Lekedi park where mandrills are still being tracked via radio collar. Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone been to this park? Can you recommend how to get to the park…
Has anyone received the electronic visa lately for Gabon?

Have you encountered any other issues at the airport?

I will be travelling to Gabon for the African Nations Cup from 14 to 29 January 2017. There is very little information on logistics for it
- I know qualification is not complete, but is there a schedule for the games per city with times and dates?
- How do we book tickets from abroad?
- The games will be Libreville, Port Gentil and Franceville (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Africa_Cup_of_Nations). Which of these places deserves to be visited for longer?

We are a couple with a small boy (20 months old in October) hoping to travel in Gabon in October. Info on any of the below would be greatly appreciated:
1)Is October a feasible time to travel in Gabon?
2)Any experience regarding travel with a small child there? Would we still be able to see most things, or do parks have age limits?
3)Is October a good time to see chimpanzees and gorillas? Is this possible with a small boy?
Thanks so much!
we want to travel into Gabon by plane at the end of August.
We need a contact in Gabon to get an E-Visa.
But the hotel won't respond via email at the question if we can use them as a contact person.
Does anybody now how we can get a contact?
