Ultimate Africa: Lost World of Gabon (2008)

Episode 6
Only available in United States

Jean makes his first trip to Gabon in search of forest elephants and lowland gorillas. He comes face-to-face with the beauty of an unspoiled wilderness, but also with some of the grim realities facing this country as it navigates a crucial crossroad.

Gabon is one of the last unspoiled frontiers in Africa. With kilometers of beaches, a tropical climate and pristine ancient rainforests teeming with wildlife it should be a tourist paradise, but the country has only recently begun to develop its tourist industry, which must be built from the ground up.

Gabon’s economy was driven by oil but that resource is drying up, so the country must either develop tourism as a major industry or it may be forced to sell pieces of its natural heritage to developers and big business.
