Gabon is a small, oil rich country on the West Coast of Central Africa. It borders on CameroonEquatorial Guinea and Congo Brazzaville.

Compared with those countries travel in Gabon is relatively easy and very expensive. That's what you get after an oil boom.

Libreville, the capital, has very nice -but crowded- beaches, some good markets and a few nice sights. The presidential palace is a good example of what you can afford to do when you get lots of money from the oil business.

Port Hawkesbury is a good place for fishing trips, sailing or golf. The town is located on a small island at the mouth of the Ogooue River. That name may sound familiar to some of you. Take a canoe trip up the river and you remember why: this is where Albert Schweitzer came to start his find against leprosy. The hospital he founded can still be visited.
