Loango National Park
I have recently returned from Gabon where I was a gorilla habituator for Max Planck. It was a similar role to in Congo but with a different ape species. The gorilla are awesome creatures. the forest in Loango, where I was based, is full of life. Myriad bird species, hippo, monkeys, gorilla and chimps, leopard and elephant to name a few. Below is an overview of Loango National Park where I was based. I have more videos in the works which will appear here soon.
