Lambaréné is a town and the capital of Moyen-Ogooué in Gabon. With a population of 25,257 as of 2009, it is located 75 kilometres south of the equator.Lambaréné is based in the Central African Rainforest at the river Ogooué. This river divides the city into 3 districts: Rive Gauche, Ile Lambaréné and Rive Droite. The Albert Schweitzer Hospital and the districts Adouma and Abongo are located on Rive Droite. The districts Atongowanga, Sahoty, Dakar, Grand Village, Château, Lalala and Bordamur build the Ile Lambaréné. The majority of the people in Lambaréné live in the district Isaac located on Rive Gauche. This district hosts the Lambaréné Airport.Today Lambaréné is inhabited mainly by Bantu ethnic groups such as the Fang, Bapounou, Eshira, and Myéné; these displaced the Pygmies to the east and north of Gabon. The main economy is the fishery. A new port is under construction.SchweitzerThe Franco-German Nobel Peace Prize winner Albert Schweitzer (1875–1965) founded his world-renowned Hospital in Lambaréné in 1913.
