LIBREVILLE CITY TOUR
TERANGA VOYAGES OFFERS YOU "LIBREVILLE CITY TOUR"
Libreville being the capital of Gabon, it is undoubtedly the most populous region in the country, since it unites half of its total population. The number of inhabitants is estimated at over 700,000 inhabitants.
It was officially founded in 1849, is the capital of the Estuary, the first province in the country. The town is a port at the estuary of the Komo River, near the Gulf of Guinea, and a center of the timber trade. It is home to the first airport in Gabon: the International Airport Léon
This province owes its name to the fact that it shelters the estuary of Gabon or rather the estuary of the Komo which, starting from the river M'bé or Mbei in Kango, runs along the coasts of Libreville as far as Cap Estérias where it flows In the Atlantic Ocean.
