Gabon Daylight Saving time (DST)

Gabon does not observe daylight savings.


Gabon uses West Africa Time WAT. WAT is UTC +0100. Gabon's latitude and longitude is 0° 00' N and 12° 00' E. Therefore an one hour offset between WAT and UTC is not surprising. Because the equator runs through the country the length of the days in Gabon is constant all year round. This means Gabon has no use for daylight savings time.
