Birougou National Park is found in central Gabon formerly called Mt Birougou wetlands. The park protects the rain forest of Chaillu Mountain and Birougou Mountain. This Gabon National park was named after Mount Birougou (975m) and occupies 690sq km.
The large block of forest on the mountains is covered with footpaths that lead to the jungle of sun-tailed guenon-a species on the red list of IUCN endangered primates, guenon that live on the banks of Lolo and Onoy rivers
The abandoned Protestant mission of Mouyanama could be renovated to cater for tourists. A museum and scientific research station could be created there. Tourist walks could be set up at Mouyanama as well as in the Park itself.
