About Gabon

Nestled in Central Africa, Gabon is one of the countries straddling the Equator. With an extensive coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, its capital is Libreville.
Gabon is home to around 40 different ethnic groups. While the official language is French, the local languages of these ethnic communities are also used in daily life.
Most of the population practices Christianity, while some follow Islam and indigenous African religions. Alongside oil and natural gas deposits, Gabon boasts significant minerals like diamonds, magnesium, gold, and iron.
About two-thirds of the country's land is covered in tropical rainforests, making logging and timber exports a vital part of its economy. Despite its growing economy, much of Gabon's population lives below the poverty line. The climate is predominantly humid tropical, with temperatures ranging between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius year-round. January marks the hottest period, while June to September brings high humidity and less rainfall. The heaviest rains occur in December and January.
As a former French colony, Gabon's cuisine has French influences. While vegetables are not heavily consumed due to limited agriculture, the country offers a wide variety of tropical fruits. Fish from the Atlantic Ocean holds a significant place in Gabonese cuisine. 
Tourism in Gabon revolves around safaris. You can join nature walks through tropical forests or embark on safari tours by vehicle to encounter wildlife like gorillas, chimpanzees, elephants, and hippos. Gorgeous beaches adorn the ocean coast, where you might even spot giant sea turtles.
Gabon faces prevalent infectious diseases such as malaria, hepatitis, yellow fever, typhoid, and rabies. Hence, it's crucial to take precautions against these diseases during your stay and to get the necessary vaccinations before traveling.
