Gabon: Lope NP – Forest Hiking

Lope NP lacks big predators like lions (although there are leopards), so it’s possible to hike in the pristine jungle – tons of strange trees with strange fruits, mushrooms, termites and ants, huge millipedes. We also spotted yellow duikers. The flora diversity is particularly overwhelming here – every tree seems different and unique. Lope NP boasts one of the highest number of plants of any park in the world – over 1500 species.
