  • Albert Schweitzer hospital has a Museum which takes you back ages... It gives you true picture of Dr. Albert Schweitzer work and one can only imagine how difficult it would be to setup a hospital and serve the community at a location which must be very remote in those days....

  • Great place to visit for an experience of Gabonese history. An effort has been made to preserve the buildings in their original state. The rooms are great, the view of the Ogooue River is magnificent. You're surrounded by nature, trees, flowers river, mangroves, animals and history.
