Liberia Top 10
Top 10 Attractions and Activities
This little-known country truly is a land of “unique West African discoveries” – a wildly attractive adventure for outdoor active explorers and travellers seeking out its incredible and unique water sport and nature experiences.
Lace up your hiking boots and visit Mount Nimba for incredible views over three West African countries which will be tough to beat. Keep your eyes peeled for an amazing array of wildlife and birdlife, as well as over 100 species of orchid and the African Giant Swallowtail, Africa’s largest butterfly, all of which find sanctuary in this rich, rainforest habitat.
Visit Kpatawee Waterfall and cool off in its refreshing cascading waters – your reward for a brisk one-hour hike to the second of the two waterfalls; the first being easy to reach from the road.
Sapo National Park
Visit Sapo National Park and wander beneath the centuries-old trees within whose branches over seven different species of primates, like the endangered Diana monkey, the Upper Guinea Red Colobus and Western Chimpanzee, find sanctuary.
Visit Robertsport, the jewel in Liberia’s surfing crown, with year-round warm weather and long waves that peel along the coast in gorgeous arcs providing ideal conditions for bodysurfing, surfing, or sliding as the Liberians refer to it.
The rich forests of Liberia provide sanctuary to such rare species as the Nimba flycatcher, Gola Malimbe and Yellow-bearded greenbul. Home to a staggering 50% of the world’s Upper Guinea, Liberia provides an exciting habitat for an incredible array of bird species and an exhilarating birding adventure for intrepid twitchers.
Visit Providence Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which was a former trade post and one of the first places where freed American Slaves arrived to build a new life in West Africa in 1822 and subsequently founded the nation known today as Liberia. Providence Island served as a station of departure and point of no return for those who were forcibly removed from their homes and enslaved in the Americas.
The Liberian locals are lively and love to share their diverse cultural heritage and rich traditions with guests. For a generous encounter with Liberian cuisine, perhaps join a traditional cooking class and learn how to make the famous palm butter soup or head into the countryside to visit a village and really get to grips with the local customs.
