Gabon and Niger

Cris Andrei
 

I am looking for information regarding doing a short production in Gabon and Niger.
What were some of the experiences in setting up a production there; planning a small shoot for an industrial video with a good amount of drone shots.  Might someone have any leads on a local person who could host (not a fan of the word "fixer") or guide a small crew through the processes of filming in those countries - customs, permits, protocol, practical information, how to prepare, etc. 

Thank you very much

For Niger you can try Agali Hamidoun. 

He worked with us as a guide in Niamey and Agadez on a doc project and was great.
