town, northwestern Gabon. The town is situated about 50 miles (80 km) east of Libreville and lies on the Como River at the head of the Gabon Estuary. Kango is the site of one of Africa's largest cellulose and paper-pulp factories, which was built in the 1970s to process products of the surrounding forest. The factory draws its electric power from the Kinguélé dam on the Mbei River, a tributary of the Como River. The main Libreville-Lambaréné highway passes through Kango, where it crosses the Como by a large, modern bridge. Pop. (1993) 971.
