History

Africa’s Eden grew from a pilot project named Operation Loango initiated in 2001, with the aim to conserve the pristine nature of Gabon through small scale tourism.

The aim of Operation Loango was to develop low-impact tourism and conservation in Gabon through the concept of ‘tourism pays for conservation’. The project offered small groups of tourists the opportunity to intimately experience the unique, diverse and intact ecosystems in and around Loango National Park.

Pilot project wrapped up in 2007

In 2007, the pilot project was wrapped up successfully and its activities formalised into three divisions.
