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?
- I'm also keen to…
Im planning a trip to Gabon in the next two weeks, I have heard and read some news that there might be public protest that could turn violent and closing the border could happen, is this true? Anybody currently there or that has traveled recently can confirm? thanks for the info!
I will be in Libreville for 3 days.
- Can anybody recommend any day trips I can do from the city? I plan on going to Pointe Denis but was hoping to see a bit more.
- Any recommendations on inexpensive accommodations in Libreville?
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?
Is it possible to go on a low budget with some local to visit the pristine jungles, like visit the jungle and the Ivela falls near the village of Louango, etc?
Any recommendations on budget accommodations in Tchibanga?
Any attractions nearby Tchibanga?
We are highly experienced travelers who are considering to travel in Gabon.
We would like to visit the pristine tropical rain forest (jungle) of Gabon independently.
That is, we would like to use public transportation and go to visit Jungle areas in Gabon on our own ,
without the necessity of using high price local tour operators/guides and no need to go inside formal
Is it possible to do it on a budget?
Are there jungle areas in Gabon that you could visit/see by using public…
Is it possible to travel independently in Gabon at low budget?
In which national parks it's possible to visit at low budget and how?
Finally, is it possible to see real dense jungle in Gabon without entering national parks? If so, where?
