This is a national park in Gabon. It covers an area of 1,160 km². The rich mineral soil of the baï attracts elephants, apes, giant forest hogs and various antelopes.
You’ll also find the Gabon viper, fascinating spiders, stinging ferns and rare birds, but whether you’ll see the dinosaur-like mokélé-mbembé of Pygmy myth is debatable.
Bordering the Republic of Congo, Mwagna is in north-eastern Gabon. It’s pretty inaccessible and has very few human inhabitants, but there’s a road from Makokou to Mékambo and on to Malouma, from where you have to walk 14km.
There are accommodation options in the regional capital of Mékambo, where permits for the park are available from the ANPN office
To be on the safe side, it is better not to drink the tap water in Gabon unless you have water-purifying tablets. Bottled water is widely available, as are soft drinks (usually referred to as jus) like Coca-Cola, Sprite and Fanta, beers, wines and spirits. ... In rural areas, the ubiquitous palm wine is the usual tipple.
