Mouila – A quiet place – Ein ruhiger Ort

11 pictures

Mouila is indeed a quiet place – not to say sleepy. It is the capital of the Ngounié region, named after the river which is the most important tributary of the Oogué. 30.000 inhabitants are living in Mouila that is linked to Lambaréné and Libreville in the north as well as Ndendé in the south via another Route Nationale. That one is quite good because it got paved by an Italian company in the recent years. Nowadays, more people are using the overland route to go to the south, which means more visitors coming to Mouila. But it is still a rarely visited town in a rarely visited region. In this respect, the lack of any touristic infrastructure and the nearly complete inaccessibility of the beautiful rainforest hinterland might play a role. Weiterlesen

Der Oogué ist der größte, längste und wichtigste Fluss Gabuns. Von seiner Quelle in der Republik Kongo (Kongo-Brazzaville) legt er 1.200 km bis zum Mündungsdelta nördlich und südlich von Port Gentil zurück, gespeist von zahlreichen Zuflüssen, von denen der Ngounié der größte ist. Der Ngounié verläuft parallel zur Küste von Süden nach Norden und mündet nördlich von Lambaréné in den Oogué. Auf ihm wurden früher Sklaven aus dem Urwald über Lambaréné an die Küste gebracht, von wo aus sie weiter in alle Welt verschifft wurden. Weiterlesen

Visiting Albert Schweitzer II – Zu Gast bei Albert Schweitzer II

27 pictures

The present Albert-Schweitzer-hospital is a kind of flagship for Gabon, but at the same time it is a constant struggle getting the money together for keeping the hospital going. It is located on top of a hill only 100 or 200 metres from the historic hospital. The latter has been preserved in the condition of the time of its famous founder and is nowadays a museum. In Albert Schweitzer’s house, photographs and other documents are on display as well as the private rooms of the doctor and his wife – including the piano he had transported to the jungle because he had also been a musicologist publishing on Johann Sebastian Bach.
