Libreville — 4 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.
Visiting Pointe-Denis Beach and Akanda National Park will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Saint Pierre, gain a rich perspective with Musee National des Arts et Traditions du Gabon, and ponder the world of politics at Palais Presidentiel.

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.
