Destination Details

Ndjolé, Gabon

The official history says it starts when Savorgnan Pierre de Brazza arrived in the village the first time. It is said that he found

so beautiful that he decided to call "pretty", it was in 1883. Over time and under the influence of language Fang (local language)

the name changed to become first "N'zouli" and then under the influence this time of the French language, it took its present form N'djolé.

You naturally understand that this is the history of the name, not that of "Ndjoléens" because it is well before the arrival of Brazza.

Located along the navigable area Ogooué (the longest river of Gabon), it has two sides and among them a historic island, the island Samory.

The missionaries were the first to settle in creating in 1897 the Mission of Saint Michel Ndjolé on the left bank, another identical Mission was built

later added on the right side because of the dangers of the canoe crossing. City Multi-ethnic and cultural true cosmopolitan place where different ethnicities

(Fang, Kota, Punu) live in full harmony. Located 225 km from Libreville on the national N1, Ndjolé remains the undeniable crossroads to reach by car to reach other

provinces.
