There is no road access to Ivindo national park, in Gabon, one of the last intact and unexplored rainforests in Africa. In 2001, during his megatransect of the continent, the biologist Michael Fay discovered the Langoue Bai, deep within Ivindo, a glade where elusive forest elephants, buffalos, gorillas and chimps romp with little fear of humans.

Getting close: Gabon-based Mistral Voyages offers custom trips to the Wildlife Conservation Society camp at Langoue Bai; prices vary
