Overall rating

Wonderful country, hardly any official demands for money, beautiful countryside, with dense rain forests.
Libreville is a characterful, if somewhat run-down city.  Quite modern, and almost everything is available, though you have to hunt around for things in the usual African Way... M'Bolo centre best 'western' shopping.
