About this book

Gabon, the land of the surfing hippo, is a West African country home to truly exceptional biodiversity. 30,000 gorillas stalk the jungle, manatees and humpbacks are present around the country’s 800 km of coastline and Gabon’s 13 national parks offer wildlife-watching experiences unlike any other. Bradt’s Gabon is the only English-language guidebook available and includes a comprehensive section on the country’s birds and bird-watching alongside chapters on history and culture. Gabon aims to attract 100,000 high and middle-end visitors by 2020 and has publicly destroyed its ivory stocks, recognizing the country’s future value as an eco-tourism destination.

Biography

Annelies Hickendorff set first foot in Gabon during an Africa Overland trip in 2006. In a 20-year-old Landcruiser she drove more than 25,000 km from her hometown in the Netherlands to reach South Africa. This journey gave her a passion for Africa in general and Central Africa in particular: the dense tropical rainforests, exceptional natural beauty and mystic peoples put a spell on her and she has been returning to the region ever since.

Annelies has been working in communications in several Sub-Saharan countries and has a keen interest in the link between environment and development.
