Ivindo National Park is a national park in east-central Gabon in Central Africa. It features rapids and waterfalls bordered by intact rainforest, which make for a landscape of great aesthetic value. The site’s aquatic habitats harbour endemic freshwater fish species, 13 of which are threatened, and at least seven species of 'Podostemaceae' riverweeds, with probable micro-endemic aquatic flora at each waterfall. Many fish species in the property are yet to be described and parts of the site have hardly been investigated.

Ivindo National Park which also boasts biogeographically unique 'Caesalpinioideae' old-growth forests of high conservation value, supporting, for instance, a very high diversity of butterflies alongside threatened flagship mammals and avian fauna such as the critically endangered forest elephant, western lowland gorilla, the endangered chimpanzee and grey parrot.
