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 Pongara National Park. Spend the 27th (Thu) exploring nature at Akanda National Park. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), get a sense of history and politics at Cour Constitutionnelle, admire the landmark architecture of L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville, and pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Saint Pierre.
