Akaka Wild Camp (and Louri River Camp) is now open to Citizens & Residents.
Do get in contact for the latest rates, check availability, and to make bookings.
Please note that gorilla trekking is not available and that Akaka Camp has an age restriction for children: 10+ years only.
Currently we are unable to receive international guests because of the strict requirements: you can only enter Gabon if you arrive with a negative Covid test no older than 5 days plus take a test on arrival and wait in quarantine until the results come through. Interprovincial travel is also restricted and requires proof of negative covid test no older than 14 days for every passage. Visas are also very difficult to obtain for travel.
As soon as these restrictions are eased to become more travel friendly we will welcome international guests again.
Akaka Jungle Camp offers the ultimate tropical “Tarzan of the Jungle” experience, where you find giant trees, multi-coloured fungi, duikers, elephants meandering among the trees and foliage, and you may even hear the booming sounds of chimpanzees. This camp really comes to life in the dry season when the the animals move to the previously unaccessible bais and jungles. An awesome time to take a boat safari along the rivers that pass by the bais, with many crocodiles and equatorial bird species along the way.
Offering an intimate, uninterrupted "Tarzan of the Jungle" experience, Akaka Camp is perfect for forgetting all the troubles of the modern world and immersing oneself in unspoilt nature, with just the right amount of luxury.
Shower under the stars surrounded by the songs of the jungle.
Leave the rest of the world behind and feel like you've gone back to a time before humans existed..
After showering under the stars and sleeping amidst the magic of the jungle, wake up in serenity & step outside your tent to enjoy your morning coffee from your jungle dwelling while taking the views of the Akaka lagoon and it's impressive bais which attract many elephants & other jungle inhabitants.
Hippos regularly frequent the waters surrounding around the camp. In fact, it is almost impossible to dine alone in the jungle!
For the evening there is a bug proof indoor dining area.
