What To Do In Liberia

View a Map of Liberia

Liberia is in West Africa. It is bordered by Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Côte d'Ivoire.

Liberia is a country with historical ties to the United States. It was founded by freed black slaves during the pre-Civil War antebellum era of the nineteenth century. Liberia's flag closely resembles the American flag, reflecting the historical ties between the two countries.

While the country is now on the mend from a devastating civil war, it has not yet redeveloped the necessary infrastructure to sustain a large increase in tourism, with little for the average visitor outside Monrovia. Towns like Buchanan, Ganta etc are little more than a collection of shanty houses with no decent hotels or food. Monrovia in general is calmer than the more far-flung areas although the situation coutrywide is improving with the presence of UN Peacekeepers. Fear should not stop you enjoying your visit but act with caution. Travel outside Monrovia is very difficult and not advisable on your own.
