Book review: Gabon by Annelies Hickendorff

Gabon by Annelies Hickendorff
Gabon by Annelies Hickendorff

It’s known as the land of the surfing hippo and one of West Africa’s mysterious and rarely visited countries.

One of the world’s most pristine eco-tourism destinations and 80 % of the country is swathed in dense rainforest and full of chimpanzees and mandrill troops.

The author has visited since 2006 and just loves the place. I have just read the book and I do too as its so inspiring. Just need to save up now to go!
