Tourism pays for conservation

Contribute to the protection of authentic nature in west central Africa

Profits generated by Africa’s Eden are reinvested in the area to ensure continued and economically sustainable protection of the national parks.

Travel to west central Africa and help conserve pristine nature

By travelling to Gabon, São Tomé & Príncipe and / or the Central African Republic, YOU contribute to the protection and conservation of unique and irreplaceable nature.

In return, you are invited in small groups to intimately experience these unique, diverse and intact ecosystems, and to understand and care about the environment and cultures that you will encounter on your journey. We try to achieve this by ensuring that expert guides give visitors a uniquely insightful and informative experience, and by giving you a chance to talk to the researchers on site.

Experience authentic nature in an exclusive manner

Rombout Swanborn, the director of Africa’s Eden explains his vision in Gabon Magazine, June 2008:

What Loango National Park can offer is authentic nature for people to experience in an exclusive manner. I want to keep Loango small-scale and high-end. We will never have 20 jeeps around a waterhole with guides shining torches into animals’ eyes here like they do on budget safaris in southern Africa.

Contribute to nature

Our approach aims to establish and sustain west central Africa as a unique global destination for tourism, in order to conserve and protect its natural and cultural heritage. This concept is called: “Conservation Tourism”.

Destinations

Have you ever dreamed of a place completely lost in time where you can see with vivid clarity how it all once was? A place of abundant wildlife, where dense jungle, savannahs, wetlands and lagoons all meet the sparkling ocean?
