World's Most Dangerous Roads: Deadliest Journeys in Gabon 2014
Deadliest Roads - Haiti:
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.

  • We are in Gabon 🇬🇦 today Spoiler on the state of Gabon’s roads: Only 20% are surfaced with asphalt. Gabon’s roads are the least developed on the continent and the two main cities capital Libreville and Port-Gentil are not connected by road but by river. Ergo: bad driving conditions. The protagonists in our documentary work in the wood industry and must navigate these dangerous roads and rivers. One route takes them and us along for the ride, from Lastourville to the capital Libreville in two days. The distance: 645 km. Some of the timber destined for export is sent downriver. The passage: from Lambarene to Port-Gentil. 300 km along the Ooogue river. The load we follow: worth € 350000. Damage or Loss to the load: the transport company must pay. What a gorgeous country. Wow. But it’s brutal. Earning a living as a truck driver, a river logger? Adventurous gives it a positive spin. Brutal, dangerous more accurate. A few facts: ~Official language is French. Independent since 1960. ~Rich in natural resources (as is all of Africa): mainly oil and wood. 89.3% of its land area forested. ~After the Amazon, Gabon has the second largest forested area in the world. Let the journeys via road and river begin. Another Spoiler alert: A lot of weird food along the way. Did I see a porcupine being grilled? Yikes. Open truck hoods, drivers doubling up as mechanics trying to fix engines, waiting for spare parts and chanting away of bad spirits. The journey. Precarious. Dangerous. Deadly at times. Always a relief when they arrive safely. Jerome calls home to let them know. NB Recently, some news regarding deforestation: The wood industry in Gabon has promised to replant every tree 🌳 it cuts down (3 million yearly). Let’s keep an eye on that and support any initiatives.

We just hope as for all the countries facing such difficulties to come out of these.

  • The majority of comments 'I really enjoy these videos; love them; enjoying guys; etc. etc. etc.. Hello, hello, people watching the destruction of the planet, cutting down virgin forest, polluting everything and saying 'I really enjoy these videos' is sick! What is going on in these videos is information that should make you angry, should make you contact your leaders and demand change. Notice that the people who make these videos, spend all the money to get there with $20,000 cameras don't have a 'single observation' that they come away with? They just film and leave? When you add up the cumulative data of all these 'Dangerous Roads' it has to be seriously depressing but apparently there are many who simply 'enjoy' and don't get the point that all these videos are making which is - planet earth is being destroyed with reckless exploitation by large companies and countries (like China), extrapolate, extrapolate and see how fast things are happening......... your offspring is going to deal with a dead world!

  • In tasmania last century they used to chop a lot of Huon pine down and float it down river however it is loaded with oil and sometimes submerges beyond visibility subsequently logs were missed and floated out to sea, these logs got caught up in ocean currents and ended up on a brazillian beach town where the villagers used the timber to build their houses.
