What is the best time to visit Liberia?
Liberia remains open throughout the year. Its proximity to the equator keeps temperature somewhat consistent – hot and humid. The Atlantic Ocean plays an important role in Liberia’s climate. On the coast, especially in the city of Monrovia, the temperature never really goes to the extreme; it is checked by the moderating nature of the ocean. So, extreme temperatures usually are never experienced on Liberia’s coastline. The further inland you travel, the more humid it would become in the summer months. It is perhaps a bit easier coming to these areas in the winter when the winds pick up and blow away the moisture from the air. Fortunately, Liberia receives minimal rainfall throughout the year, so expect open sky throughout your trip.

September is the month in which Liberia experiences the lowest tourist influx.

The low rainfall during this month also is a plus, and the country, on the whole, remains dry, perfect for some exploration.

In search of freedom, solitude and equality, the freed slaves from the plantations of the United States settled on the coast of Liberia.

Liberia was the founding member of the League of Nations, United Nations and African Union.
- Liberia is one giant exhibit of nature’s magnificence. Mount Wuteve or Mount Wologizi, as the local Loma tribe calls it, is the highest peak in Liberia. The Mountain is part of the ranges that are an extension of the West African Mountains. The blue-green mountain is a monument to nature and the track up the mount is less of a challenge when you can pause for a while and look at Liberia from a high vantage point. Mount Wuteve is 1440 meters high.
- Lake Piso is a lagoon in Liberia’s eastern corner that has been designated as “a wetland of international importance”. The lagoon is filled with brackish water; many rivers discharge into the lagoon but a small outlet also connects the pool with the Atlantic Ocean. The briny water of the ocean mixes with the fresh water in the shallow lagoon to become a breeding ground for many fish species. Many small islands in the lagoon are a sanctuary for the many birds that migrate to the lagoon to breed. Robertsport is a small port town at the mouth of the lagoon that has many excursion activities for the tourists heading to Lake Piso.
- Sapo National Park is located in the west of the country. The national park is one of the few places in the world that protects a primary rainforest, complete with living ancient trees and the densest wildlife and ecosystem in the region. Liberian Forestry Development Authority controls and protects these forests. The forest canopy can go as high as 32 meters that shelters a dozen endangered species.
