Franceville Vacation Packages
Travelers with a little more time in Gabon, can travel a little further afield explore other destinations surrounding Franceville. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find Moanda, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east, and Akieni 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southwest.
Tours are a good way to experience places only locals know. Join one of the wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris.
For many of us, visiting new places is as much about eating as it is about sightseeing, so be sure to check out the food and drinks here. Bushbutter and mangoes are just two prized ingredients. Typical dishes are manioc (cassava) and cooked bush meat, but of course there are many more Gabon options to choose from. But your meal is not really complete until you have had baked banana, a popular dessert here. Visitors who are not used to drinking alcohol will want to sample coconut milk, a regional favorite.
Invest the time to learn a little French to bond with the locals in Gabon. Why not try "Je viens de..." The English translation is "I come from..." And, for "What's your name?", you can say "Comment est-ce que vous vous appelez ?" It's fun to give it a spin!
You'll be reluctant to say "Au revoir / À bientôt" (farewell) to this magnetic spot.
