Some random bits from Gabon. Did not get action as I was in female company, but there are girls all over the place.
As everywhere in Africa, girls are at many of the cheaper discos and beer-drinking places. They will find you. Or make some male friends by buying them beers, and they will give you the lowdown on girls.
Price for girls: In smaller towns, probably in the 5.000 CFA (10 US$) range. In places with many rich expats, asking price is 10.000 CFA (20 US$) or more.
Quality: Girls are beautiful, and great companions for chatting or hanging out at daytime.
Language: you need to speak some French to get around easily.
"je suis seul ce nuit. je voudrais chercher une fille"
(I am alone tonight. I would like to look for a girl...).
In quartier Louis, the main restaurant & bar area, there are a few proper nightclubs. One is at a corner 2 blocks up from the well-known Odika restaurant. Looked expensive, probably in the 50-100 US$ range.
Places with cheap local bars that are safe and accessible for tourists: - at the upper end of quartier Louis (just walk uphill on the main drag, 5-6 blocks away from the Odika - at the lower end of quartier Mt Bouet, in the diagonal street inland from Point Mole - at the "couloir de la mort" in quartier LaLaLa.
The "Auberge Missala" has a disco with girls.
Also try out their fishing camp in Sette Cama (great place to see the southern end of the Loango national park).
In Gamba town, girls hang out at the aptly named "Greenpeace" bar (the area around Gamba is the center of Shell oil exploration).
For having hang on a long time in Gabon, let me give you ALL places where you can find girls.
If you really want to pay, go to the bars of restaurants & hotels, you may also try the disco bars (Amiral, Cotton Club, Vertigo, ...)
If you got less money (5,000 - 10,000 FCFA = 7.5 € - 15 €), you'll find girls along the beach at night, around an area called "Chez Jeannot" in Louis, near the "Camp De Gaule" (the french army HQ) which is a very unsafe area even for locals.
You may also find girls in Lalala à gauche (couloir de la mort Death Hall) or in Gare Routière and YogoSanté. (Nigerians and Cameroonese girls) but I dare you to put a single foot down there alone.
Finally, for those that likes to have sex for free and are a little bit smart, just stop the girls in the street. In many cases, you'll get her in your bed before the night. FOR FREE !!!
I was in Gabon a couple of years ago. I stayed at the Okoume Palce Hotel. The hookers there were rather blatant. They would follow you up in the elevator and show you their tits. Also, they were quite graphic in explaining what they would do for you. Believe me, language is not a barrier in that sense.
As to prices - the going rate for half and half seemed to be about 35 to 40 USD!
Welll Zouk Love,
If you are familiar to places like "couloir de la mort", then you are a real "Librevillois"!
The only info I can add on your excellent report are the SW from Cameroon on the beach road between "Montée de Louis" and the airport as well as those in front of the Meridien and the Okoume Palace (for those who dare not to go further than their hotel gate).
Tell me more !!! I know Libreville as the bottom of my right pocket.
I will be in Libreville in a couple of month, ready to put the fire in the town (but I'll avoid the toough neighborhoods such as "Boston", "Cocotier", "Petit Paris", 'Rio", "Akebe", "Boul'Bess'" and much more dangerous area)
I'll try to get you pictures of girls down there only for u people.
So, I was in Libreville for several weeks and that's what I found.
A girl called Cinthya, ready to fuck and enjoy some good sperm in the mouth. As she never tried the sodo, I was pleased to make her discover this pleasure.
(below pics from the girl)
Libreville is, for the moment, the most pervert and hot town of Africa. Any single lady or guy has only two things in their mind : alcohol and sex.
As a regular visitor to Douala, I'm very intrigued at Zouk Love's postings. Could Gabon be such a good place? I thought that as an oil-producing country, Gabon was an overpriced placed whith plenty of oil money to "spoil" the best girls. I remember reading a list somewhere of "the most expensive cities in the world" where Libreville featured in the top five alonside Tokyo!
Also, I've known girls from the Cameroons who had been on trips to Gabon to make some money, so prices should be higher in Gabon compared to the Cameroons, I think.
I would be interesting to hear about a comparision between Libreville and Douala by people who have been to both places.
Guys, what are you looking for? Sex or shoes?
I mean, if you are looking for sex, definitely, Libreville IS the place to be. Girls are not all looking for money. Of course, if you come with your dollars and show them how many notes you've gotta spend, of course, they'll want to see these notes going in their pockets and will make you go in the very expansives bars or clubs. But, if you're smart, you take a room in a nice hotel (Okoume or Méridien). The basic room is about 20.000 FCFA (30 €) Then, you chat girls up around the town. You make them come in the room and you do what you wanna do.
Now, if you wanna live like a good occidental, then prepare to spend a lot of money. For instance, a glass of cola in a french bar will cost you between 1500 FCFA and 2000 FCFA (2€ to 3€) while a bottle of cola in a gabonese bar will cost you 600 FCFA (1€). Your choice to spend more than what you should.
I stayed a month over there. I did not have a hotel but I rent motel rooms for fucking when I needed, I took the taxi every single day, several times a day, I ate and drank every day outside and I fucked every single day of my journey. I spent maybe around 300 €.
Up to you guys, but if you do not go, fine for me, there will be more girls to fuck.
Port Gentil is a pretty typical west African port. It was once a French colony and there is still a large French presence, with French being the spoken language. The capital is Libreville, which is only a 20 minute flight from here, but by road it might take one whole day. It is dead easy to fly to Libreville from Europe/Paris. The local currency is the CFA (Communauté Financière Africaine Franc). €1 is about 650 CFA or £1 is about 1000 CFA. It is used in several west African countries, not just here. There are many reliable and safe cash machines in town. It is also easy to change Euros, less so British Pounds or US Dollars.
On the girl scene, there is plenty of choice. There are no such things as brothels, not that I've heard about anyway. If you want to meet women you simply go into a bar, disco or restaurant and they will find you! Once you are at one of these places, several girls or maybe just one or even just a barmaid will approach you. All will want to chat over one or several drinks (time well spent I must say) and then after a little chat you can or they might suggest a visit to either their place (which is pretty safe) or to a motel. If it is a motel, a taxi (which are plentiful) will take you to one of literally dozens of very low key / low budget motels, which aren't obvious from the front. A degree of luck and trust on behalf of the taxi driver is required here. The room will cost between 3000 CFA and 20,000 CFA (£3 to £20) for the night depending, and will be African basic, with possibly an en suite with hot and cold taps but with only cold water form both. Never mind.
After doing the deed, you can either drop the girl back in town, or continue to stay the night, depending on what the original deal was. It is when leaving that you give the girl the money to “pay for the taxi” i.e to pay her for her time. Telling her it is for the taxi will make her feel much better, and this is important if you want to see her again. Pay her anything from 5000 CFA to 30,000 CFA. If you want this girl to be your girl then the higher amount is advisable. Either way, it is still dirt cheap. You will probably find that most of the girls are either “dirty” (excellent) or just down right nymphomaniacs. You won't be disappointed.
Word of warning, come prepared. Take a bottle of water to the motel with you, along with some quality European condoms and even some Viagra tablets if so desired. Even some lubricant in a small bottle might help, especially if she wants to be fucked up the ass! Ooh ah Mrs!
Last night was another great night. I went out for a few beers with some of my esteemed colleagues. We got to out third bar, one on the beach called Mama Waters. One of my friends then had his girl arrive, who kindly brought along her older 23 year old sister, and another less attractive woman. Several of us soon paired off, and I went to a motel with the older sister, Sandra.
She was pretty hungry for sex I must say, but this enthusiasm was slightly wasted because we ran out of condoms. The first one broke, so I used my one. After a little sleep, she was as horny as hell, and wanted my cock to be buried deep in her pussy, her very wet pussy. Darn, what I would have given for a quality European condom at that time. She wanted me to shag her without a condom, but I resisted. Always do! I then decided, after a wank, to leave. I was going to walk out to the road and flag down a passing taxi. My girl wouldn't allow me to do this, saying there were bandits out there, and I would get mugged and stabbed. She kindly called me a taxi.
Port Gentil is quite a fun place if in a typical dirty haphazard sort of African way. When you go out for the night there is certainly no shortage of types of places to visit, classy, seedy, lively, basic, its all here.
Immediately outside the port gate is a bar called Dockers. It is basic, but the beer is cool and adequate. If you only want one or two beers before going home then this place is fine. It is also a fine place to have your first beer of the night, somewhere you can line your stomach and get you in the mood. Here you will meet the local pimp called Eddie. He will exchange money (although not at a rate that will make you smile), advise you about where to go in town or on the beach, and then he will take you there, often returning to collect you later. The best thing about Eddie is that he is reliable and honest. When you are only talking about a few quid, who cares if the rates are not the best?
Eddie has now taken me to have a Chinese massage four times and I can't complain. Last night I got up early and headed out by myself. I had a beer at the Dockers with some other guys who happened to be there, then got dropped off. I had taken the opportunity of taking half of a recently bought Viagra pill, so when I got my clothes off in preparation for the massage I was standing proud. This time the second of the two Chinese girls worked on me, and I must say, it was almost identical to the massage given to me by the first, which is to say, pretty good.
At the end, the girl left and I re clothed myself, pushing my erection into my underpants.
Outside in the bar area sat “my” first girl, who I made it clear to I wanted to “make love to her” right here, right now. I paid 'Mark' (very unlikely name for a Chinese man with zero personality) the extortionate price of £35, and went into the bedroom in the back. My girl got her kit off and we got down to it. She gave a very reasonable bb blow-job, typical of one from a girlfriend you had just started having sex with, very delicate and slow. Some good hard fucking followed, during which she was either on the verge of ecstasy, of in severe pain. I finished off with her tossing me into her mouth, but sadly, she spat out my valuable semen, some 30 seconds later. Only then did my proud erection start to slide.
Many of the other guys have local “girl friends” who they meet up with, buy a few drinks and then go and fuck them senseless in a very cheap, seedy hotel. Some relationships last a week, others a night. There's certainly a lot of fast love in these here parts. I picked up my girlfriend, or should I say ex, in the disco a week ago. Very sex hungry, dirty, (liked lots of anal play) and young. However, when I went to pick her up again two nights ago, after saying hello to me in the bar where she works, she trotted off and started talking to another white guy. My heart was broken! Well, actually, I was mildly pissed off that I wasn't going to get any anal sex with her that night.
So, Port Gentil, similar to other ports up and down the west coast here is a very entertaining place and good value too. I wouldn't come on holiday here, but it is certainly fun to be passing through, and to be getting paid for it.

By the way, have you any hotel in the center of PG to recommend? I was once in the 'Le Meridien', but it was (and is) terrible expensive! Any hint would be highly appreciated!
Cheers - Hesekiels
The best place to stay in Port Gentil is Le Meridien and it is 2 1/2 stars at best. The only saving grace is that the food there is very good and it is very close to another very good restaurant. Port Gentil is very expensive for everything except the companionship. The best place for high quality companioship is Le Gallion, a nice club with pool tables in one section, a small disco in another section and a nice bar in another section. Port Gentil is safe, very expensive by anyone's standards has a nice quantity of beautiful companions (professional or semi-professional), but it only worth visiting if you are on an expense account. You will have to wait until the price of oil drops by $20-$30 per barrel for the prices to drop, but the all of the things that make Port Gentil a good place (safety, food, quality of women) may go away as well if this happens.Originally Posted by Hesekiels
Many thanks for the update, brother! BTW, have you been in PG recently? I am wondering how much the current rate for a nice girl is?Originally Posted by Russ Arnold
If I remember correctly I gave my cuties in the morning just some 'taxi money' and all of them were quite satisfied with that. When I was in PG I picked a couple of lovely girls (mostly nurses from a nearby hospital) at 'Safari Club' (I am not sure whether this disco still exists), a place one bottle of beer used to cost about 25 US bucks many years ago! Can you give us a fresh price indication? That would be indeed highly interesting!

This beach resort. Well collection of shacks is quite good fun.
I was there last week with my crew, 2 guys and two girls, but we are not "together".
I did not fancy to party, but my friends experience was interesting.
We stayed in le Maridien, and confirm it is expensive WOW.
We went to Baracuda, for a meel, as originally we were bucked in, and refused to stay, and went to Le M. But went back to Baracuda, for a drink, and a meal. The main waitress was very nice, and looked like my current girl in Dubai. I told my friend that she was very nice, and if I was looking I would take her.
Our local contacts set up a club visit for 10h30 that night, and she with a friend came along. I assume the idea was one each. Fine bu my, but I was too tired, so cried off.
To cut the long short short my friend took her back to hotel, Le M, and she stayed 2 hours. He paid her 150US. I told him he was mad. But not my money.
In the Lobby there are several WG, sitting, and hoping, but none that took my fancy. However one did approach, spoke good english, and if I was in the mood, would have taken away. Not certain if she would have been happy, with my negotionatial skills (! ), ie 100 US per full night.
Saw one stunner walk out at lunch time, sith a smile on her face, and almost told her to do a 180 nad cum back with me.
The place is very friendly, and very safe.
Will be first time in Libreville in a couple of weeks. Been offered accommodation at the Laico Okoume. I note among its facilities the attractions of sauna and massage. Now if I was back in Asia I would know exactly what to expect. But what can I expect here (if anything)?
Hope to get a chance to "explore" elsewhere, but its always nice to get on-site service for those times when you can't be arsed to venture further afield.
Also, what is current price guide, and preferred currency, for taking a girl back to your room for an hour or so?
Well folks, I can now answer my own question (post below). The answer is. Absolutely nothing.
What was once perhaps the gym + sauna at the Laico Okoume is closed and under development by some architectural outfit from Beijing. The website description can best be described as "aspirational".
Wasnt able to venture further afield. Maybe next time!
Guys, I dont know if you had a look at this website but I found interesting places and went to the places described there
I liked the Dorian Hotel, clean, safe area, not that expensive and... a huge mirror near the bed ;-)
Nice area on the seafront, not very nice rooms but in the week-end, the beach is full of young and attractive girls
This club is amazing... 90% of girls ready to jump on your pants to take it off and suck it to the bone
Beware of young burglers around the club...
Very nice and tasty restaurant
I definitely enjoyed Libreville
Well, there is really not a lot of activity in this forum. Thought I'd add a bit here:
Have not tested them and only stayed at the Meridien which is a totally overpriced and lousy hotel built in the 60's or 70's and has never seen any update since then. The bad news is. There is not much competition for them in Libreville. Have not seen any hotels of international standard that are newer around here. The good thing: The Meridien is GF so no much hassle to bring somebody, except she'll have to leave her I'd with the security guard over night.
Most of night life is concentrated in the "Louis" area. Plenty of nightlife venues there.
La Licorne: Awesome place with the cutest girls ever. Highly recommend. Some expats, not very crowded. The pizza place next to it is quite good.
Cotton Club: More upscale venue that asks for 5. 000 CFA entry. Great selection of women inside. Seems to be the hangout of the expat community. Bursting with activity on Fridays / Saturdays.
Tropicana: Right opposite the airport, on the beach. Nice atmosphere, decent food, next to it there is a venue with plenty of girls and music bursting. Beware of burglars though.
Generally food and drinks are on the expensive side compared to other African countries. But the women are just great. I have had only one I met the first night I stayed here. Decided to stick to her since she was fantastic. Never asked for money. I gave her CFA 10, 000 anyway as taxi money in the mornings.
Transport: Taxis are crusing back and forth on the main street. Within city limits you pay between 1000-2000 CFA.
All-in-all, there is not much to do in Libreville and if the girls weren't so hot I'd give it a pass. But they are. So enjoy.
