Libreville | Gabon | City Gallery

This thread is set up for those who can post photos of Libreville, capital of Gabon. I noticed a very good posting done of the second largest city Port Gentil, which also is a base for the oil industry. Also include photos of new projects and developments. Matthias I know you must have alot on this city as well. Look forward to your posts!

Looks like some beautiful beaches and wilderness areas in Gabon. South African Airways is planning to start flights there soon which should open up more tourism potential.

Im impressed, a lot !

I know that Gabon produces oil a lot but these are not the sights that I expected from Gabon !

Libreville is such a developed town with many greenery. And the beaches look very striking !

Franceville is sooo tropical !

Here are some more Libreville pics I've managed to find recently.







I believe these pics were taken in 2004.

Not the most recent pics (dating from 2005) but they show various parts of the city!

The city is really full of taxis (all those older vehicles in white and red are taxis)




















wonderful Gabonese art



small place within the city to say your prayer

The city is quite clean. I'm suprised that Libreville isn't as well known as Cairo, lagos or Nairobi

Wow, that supermarket is the first one I've ever seen where the cashiers get to sit down.

The government is currently spending a lot of money in the modernization of the road infrastructure (around $400 million US dollars are invested this year and next year in road building and modernization which is a good batch of money for a country the size of Gabon).

I will try to find up-to date pictures by visiting various blogs!
Yeah, i knew they were old, but I still wanted to get more photos of Gabon out there anyway. Seeing more can't really hurt, can it?

Besides, the city needs all the exposure it can get. I just don't think people know or see enough of it.
