We also service James Spriggs Payne Airport (IATA: MLW) and is located much closer to Monrovia only 5 KM away. This airport is named after James Payne who was an American son of two slaves. This airport is used by one airline ASKY Airlines who offers flights to Accra, Freetown and Lome. The regional United Nations offices are based at this airport and much of the air traffic consists of UN flights and helicopter departures for them. This is a very small airport but it does have a shop and parking outside.
Liberia is a wonderful country with a blend of Americanism and West African spirit. Sapo National Park and its lush rainforest is a great place to experience some of the many lurking wildlife, including pygmy hippos, antelopes and elephants. To reach the park it takes a full day driving from Monrovia and even the drive itself is unforgettable in a 4WD vehicle. A tourist should dress in a conservative manner and giving small monetary gifts to people is commonplace and do not be surprised if you are asked for money. Liberia has the highest annual population growth in the World at a rate of 4.7% annualy. Today the population is nearly 5 million.
Monrovia, the capital is full of great energy and is a mix of the past, the present and the future. On the one hand you might see very old American style colonial buildings, street traders selling their goods from worn out wheelbarrows along with well dressed businessmen and young people fashionably dressed ready for a photo shoot. In the past, the city has struggled with war, poverty and even Ebola but yet it still tries to climb to its feet.
