Located to the west of the African country of Gabon, the Loango National Park is famous for its mythical surfing hippos, but also because in its waters you can see the highest concentration of whales and dolphins, elephants walking on the beach, gorillas of the western plains in forests and various rare mammals frolicking in the savannah.

It was declared in 2002, although since 1986 it was a protected area as Petit Loango Wildlife Reserve, being registered in the Ramsar sites (Wetlands of International Importance).

Approximately 500 people live in the surroundings of the Park and, for the most part, work in the Park as guides, guards, assistants to the scientific teams and other activities related to conservation.

It is undoubtedly one of the best destinations on the planet to see wild animals.
