Liberia has once again emerged as the adventurer's choice destination after decades of instability. Founded by freed American slaves in 1822, Africa's oldest republic is now embracing tourism. Whether tracking down the last of the world's pygmy hippos or surfing along stretches of deserted beaches, Liberia will entice curious and adventurous visitors. Bradt's Liberia is a unique title being the only dedicated travel guide to the country. With a detailed section on forest hikes, including first-hand advice, and chapters on history and culture, it is the definitive guide for backpackers and business travellers alike.
