About some traditions

The region was initially inhabited by the Pygmy peoples later the people of the Bantu tribes immigrated to the place. Most Gabonese have Bantu origin, including four major tribal groupings (Fang, Bapounou, Nzebi, and Obamba). Mask making and ritual face paint are important parts of Gabonese culture, and styles vary dramatically between groups. The Gabonese people use masks to praise the ancestors and to mark important life events by signifying transformation.

The country is open and hospitable for travelers.

Almost 80-85% of Gabon is covered by rainforests, 11% of which has been dedicated for national parks making these parks some of the largest nature parks in the world. Gabon is home to 80% of Africaís Gorilla population. Gabon is home to hundreds of dolomite and limestone caves many of which are yet to be explored.
