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. Your inner history buff will appreciate Hassane II Mosque and L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), try to win big at Casino Croisette, get a sense of history and politics at Cour Constitutionnelle, and look for gifts at Marche du Mont-Bouet.
