Waka National Park, Gabon 

Waka National Park is a national park in central Gabon. Waka protects over 1,000 km² of rain forest in the Chaillu Massif. The mountains of the Chaillu Massif- tough, steeply-valleyed and of a savage beauty- seem today to be at the heart of untamed nature. However, a second look shows that it has not always been so.

There is a narrow and deep forested rift valley 100 km long in the middle of the Mitsogho land. A remarkable feature of the site is the Ikobé-Ikoy-Onoy rift valley, deeply incised into the landscape. It follows a line of geological faults over 100 kilometres long with crystal-clear, pebble-bedded rivers funneling through it.
