Gabon Travel Information

What to Pack

Pack in plenty of cotton clothes, as they are the most comfortable items of apparel in the hot and humid days in Gabon. Adequate supplies of prescription medicines and a basic first aid kit containing essential medicines, antiseptic ointments, insect repellent cream/lotion, anti-malaria and water purification tablets and anti histamines is an absolute must.

Do remember to pack in a flashlight and spare batteries, binoculars, comfortable sturdy shoes and a backpack for the trip to the game parks. Most essential is a sense of adventure and great holiday spirit, as the African continent constantly springs surprises on its visitors.

Travel Documents

All visitors to Gabon require visas and must possess passports valid for another six months. A variety of tourist, business, transit, single entry or multiple entry visas are issued on applying to the Gabon missions abroad. Processing takes up to two weeks as all applications are referred back to Libreville.

Visas must be used within three months of date of issue. Yellow fever vaccination certificates are mandatory for all visitors before they are allowed into Gabon.
