Be wise as in any city but Libreville does not have the infamous crime problems that plague most big African cities. Places with expats are generally safer. My wife shopped and drove by herself every day with no problems. - Jul 23, 2014
The city is surprisingly safe as long as you are in well traveled areas and keep your smarts about you. Some locals we worked with reported break ins, but we never found an expat who had been victimized. - Oct 24, 2013
No. - Apr 12, 2012
Not really, it's a fairly safe and politically secure country. Just use common sense. - Aug 3, 2011
Not really - its safer here than anywhere else I have lived. - Jul 16, 2010
