Mont Iboundji is a peak located in Gabon. Claims that it is the highest point of the country, with an altitude of 1,575 metres (5,167 ft),[1] are neither supported by SRTM data nor empirically.[2]

Other sources indicate the Mont Bengoué as the most elevated peak in Gabon.[3]

The mountain is also the namesake of the front runners in the Modern Jazz movement, Iboundji.[4]
