Libreville is the largest city in and capital of Gabon.
You can get to Libreville by plane with Turkish Airlines (direct flights from Istanbul), Lufthansa, Ethiopian Airlines, Air France, Virgin Nigeria (from Lagos via Douala), Gabon Airlines and Air Gabon International (the brand new -private- Air Gabon). SAA flies direct to/from Johannesburg.
The best way to get around in Libreville if you don't have a car are taxis. For a trip from point A to B the fare is negociated with the driver depending on the distance. Fares will double after 21 hrs. The cars are not very secure (broken doors, no seatbelts), but if you insist on careful driving, the chauffers will try to oblige. Mini-buses are also available for longer routes, which are quite similar to taxis.
What to see
Libreville's greatest asset is, probably, the seafront where people gather daily to relax by the Atlantic Ocean. All along the seafront you will find some Gabonese sculptures looking over the beach.
You could also go in Nzeng-ayong to see the Arboretum de Sybang which is a huge tree sanctuary inside Libreville which groups thousands of local species.
The centre ville is also a nice area to visit, in which you are able to enjoy the nearby ocean breeze.
Libreville is a place where people are very laid back and take things slowly. There is not an exhaustive list of things to do.
The Majestic and Centre Culturel Français (next to Mbolo, the main supermarket) provide both cinema and game rooms; also occasional expositions and concerts.
If you'd like to relax on a nice deserted beach, you could go to the Cap Esterias or to Cap Santa Clara, about 30 minutes by car from Libreville. The beach there is beautiful, with a stunning view of Libreville' s seafront.
In general do not expect people to speak English (except for some immigrant taxi drivers from West Africa). 80% of the population speak French.
