"Ganta 1999" Ganta by jacobzoethout

Ganta Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 6 photos

In March 1999, I spent two nights and one whole day in Ganta, northern Liberia. Not really a tourist destiny, but it was a great experience for sure.

During the day, we visited schools, the hospital and even the mayor of the town, Mrs Millar.

    Good VT post. In 2009 during my first visit back to Liberia I found it much the same as you did. I think that there were more functioning restaurants. Still no electricity and the hospital was still a lot poorer than in 1975. We now have 2 schools in Ganta doing our k-3 "Liberia Reads" program we started in 2009. Liberia remains an off the beaten track place with little if anything to attract tourists. Poor, poor, poor, but improving.

    Very interesting you visited this place in Liberia. It looks like the way I had to find my accommodations and transport in Ghana in the early 80s.
