Your inner history buff will appreciate L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville and St Marie Cathedral. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Pointe-Denis Beach, admire the landmark architecture of Institut francais, get a sense of history and politics at Palais Presidentiel, and don't miss a visit to Memorial Leon Mba.

Though tourism in Gabon remains a fledgling industry, the benefits of exploring this untempered place of wildlife-rich rainforests and ethnic diversity are numerous. A large percentage of the country remains protected as national parkland, allowing the dolphins playing in the Atlantic and the chimps and forest elephants to breathe a sigh of relief. The population includes around 40 different ethnicities, but the country has thankfully avoided the conflict and ethnic violence common among many of its neighbors.
