Poulet Nyembwe is considered the national dish of Gabon, consisting of bite-sized pieces of chicken in nyembwe sauce. The sauce is traditionally made from the ripe red fruit surrounding the seeds of African oil palms.
CLOTHING. Today, most Gabonese wear Western-style clothing. Men wear suits and ties to the office, and blue jeans and T-shirts during the weekend. Women wear dresses and skirts of a Western cut, with material of a colorful African print and the detailed embroidery work done by tailors all over West and Central Africa.
Gabon, a central African country, is rich in natural resources. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, it borders Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, and the Republic of Congo. It is sparsely populated, with a population of 2 million (2017) and forests covering 85% of its territory.
