Tourism
Considering the fact that tourism is the world’s largest generator of jobs, tourism can be an engine of growth, capable of rejuvenating other sectors of the economy, and in Liberia, tourism has the potential to serve as one of the country’s premier investment opportunities. With its tropical weather, accessible wildlife, impressive energy, prime waterfront locations, diverse culture and infrastructure boom, Liberia is striving to become one of the leading locations to visit on the African continent. Furthermore, because Liberia uses the U.S. dollar as legal tender, the potential for tourism growth in Liberia is phenomenal. One of the goals for the Liberian government is to develop the tourism sector as a national priority that is sustainable.

The Sapo National Park in Sinoe County, Liberia, is West Africa’s second largest area of primary tropical rainforest and offers excellent opportunities for safaris and jungle treks. It is also reported to have the highest mammal species diversity of any region in the world, hosting roughly 125 mammal species and 590 types of birds. It is also home to a number of threatened species such as the African Golden Cat, Drill, Gola Malimbe, Liberian Mongoose, White-breasted Guinea Fowl, and White-necked Rock Fowl.

Liberia is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in Africa, which provide a safe and relaxing atmosphere where the waters are warm and inviting. There are several hotels located on the beach with absolutely stunning views of the ocean, and the summer temperature is cooled by the breeze of the Atlantic Ocean. The beach is also a market place for petty vendors carrying their loads of fresh coconut water, mangoes and refreshing drinks.

Lake Piso is an open coastal lagoon west of Monrovia and has been designated as a Wetland of International Importance. It is both a nursery and spawning ground for fish and sea turtles and a feeding and roosting place for large numbers of sea and shore birds.
