Pte. Ste. Cathérine Beach Camp
Where the lagoon meets the sparkling ocean
Hide away from the world at our Beach Camp, where you will find yourself on a great stretch of wild, pristine beach, nearly 100 kilometres long. It is so remote that the only footprints in the sand besides your own are those left by scurrying crabs.
Tassi Savannah Camp
Where Mammals roam freely on the beach
Located on the savannah, the Tassi Savannah Camp will give you a much more classical ‘Africa feel’, not easily found elsewhere in densely forested west central Africa. While relaxing on the private terrace of your tent or enjoying a drink in the restaurant there’s always a chance of seeing some elephants around the camp.
In 2002, late President Omar Bongo Ondimba put Gabon firmly on the map as an important future ecotourism destination by nominating more than 11% of the nation’s territory as National Park – a new standard in African eco-tourism and conservation!
Gabon is home to western lowland gorillas and nearly 200 other mammal species and 600 species of birds. In Loango National Park, you can find elephants and buffalos roaming freely on its endless beaches.
Rainfall varies from an annual average of 120 inches in the capital Libreville to 150 inches on the northwest coast, with almost all of it falling between October and April. In the period from May to September there is little, if any, rainfall, but humidity remains high.
The earliest inhabitants of Gabon are the pygmy people. Pygmy tribes are known for their hunting & gathering culture in the central African rainforest, and for their height: adult members grow on average to less than 150 cm (4 feet 11 inches).
