Libreville ©
The capital of Gabon and home to almost half of the country's residents, Libreville differs from many African cities, with paved roads, clean streets, and luxurious residences.
Step out of the city life by going to Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park. Get some historical perspective at Hassane II Mosque and Notre-dame de Lourdes. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Saint Pierre, and see where the action happens at Stade d'Angondje.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Libreville holiday planning app.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Libreville is an approximately 29-hour flight. Traveling from Jakarta to Libreville, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Jakarta in October, expect nights in Libreville to be about the same, around 28°C, while days are a bit cooler, around 33°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Lope Wildlife Reserve.
