Fly to Libreville in West Africa and visit the fascinating capital of Gabon. This city rests on the banks of the Gabon Estuary, which opens up to the Gulf of Guinea and the South Atlantic Ocean. Though modern sites like the Museum of Art and Culture attract visitors to Libreville, the nearby Akanda National Park also brings people out to hike and admire the uniquely untouched wilderness at the edge of this sprawling capital city.
Stop by the Presidential Palace, which has stood since 1907, to view some of the city's best Edwardian architecture. Mingle with the locals while browsing hundreds of vendors at the Mont-Bouet market north of downtown Libreville. Those looking to enjoy a day in the sun should head to Ekwata Beach for an afternoon on sandy shores. Why not try waterskiing at Port Gentil and Pointe Denis Afterward, tour the historic St. Michel Church and its 31-foot-tall, carved wooden columns.
Be sure to pack the appropriate clothing before you fly to Libreville. This city has a subtropical climate with highs up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and near-freezing temperatures in the winter. After arriving at Libreville International Airport (LBV), you can find rental cars, taxis and other ground transportation services near the terminal. The L101 highway runs along the coast and provides a route to nearby restaurants and hotels. For annual festivities, visit in July for the Akini to Loubou contemporary dance festival, which also features workshops and artistic presentations.
