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.
Visiting Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville, admire the masterpieces at Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), get a taste of the local shopping with Marche du Mont-Bouet, and pause for some serene contemplation at Notre-dame de Lourdes.

Newark, USA to Libreville is an approximately 23-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Newark to Libreville due to the time zone difference.
