The forests of Gabon are some of the densest and most mysterious in the world. Living there is almost impossible due to all the wild animals, snakes and insects hiding behind every leaf. But there are a few adventurous souls who risk it all in this green hell every day.
They are the drivers of enormous logging trucks that can carry up to 40 tons of wood at a time. It is on these giant logs that the entire country’s fortunes depend. The drivers race across the country in these huge machines to take the exotic wood from the Forest of Bees logging sites to Gentil port; it is a 350km feat of endurance and skill that is not for the faint hearted.
