Ecotourism in Liberia?
A reporter from the Christian Science Monitor discovers vast tourism potential of Sapo National Park:
"...climbing through monstrous vines and stepping over slippery roots, we did see many large birds such as the great blue turaco and the hornbill, which, they told us, calls on the hour. And the foliage was Edenesque...the dahomey tree, with huge wall-like vertical roots; the fogara tree, covered in thick, sharp spikes; a tree with six-inch-thick cylindrical curving vines that you can slice open and drink water from; and the "candle tree" which has a white, waxlike sap. ("If you light it on fire, it will burn all night," says Mr. Goll.) The highlight, though, had to be the black cobra sighting."
For people with the money to get here, who don't mind the lack of tourist infrastructure, it sounds great.
