Libreville

— 6 nights
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park. Get some cultural insight at Hassane II Mosque and Notre-dame de Lourdes. Spend the 29th (Tue) in the pleasant surroundings of Pongara National Park. There's lots more to do: browse the exhibits of Musee des Arts et Traditions du Gabon (Museum of Art and Culture), pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedrale Saint Pierre, shop like a local with Marche du Mont-Bouet, 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.
