Gabon: Loango NP – Last Sunset on the Beach

And the last but most certainly not least post from Gabon. Loango National Park is know as the only place in the world where you can catch mega giant tarpon fish by just casting from the beach into the surf. 120-140 pound (most girls weigh less then that) fish can be reeled just like that from the white sand beach! Easy in theory but much harder in practice – it’s a massively long fishing pole that you need to know how to cast into the incoming wave, it’s being able to spot when fish is biting, and then reeling in these monsters is no joke either. Long story short – I caught nothing… but witnessed perhaps one of the most spectacular sunset in my life.
