The secretary was a very kind woman and we only had to fill out one form, hand in 2 passport photos and pay 69US$/person for a 1 month single entry visa valid from desired date. We could pick up our visas on the next day in the afternoon. Theoretically the price is the same for a 3 day till 3 month visa.

Superfriendly guy, making sure you are allright. Private secluded and under cotton trees for protection from the elements. And surf is just in front of you as great bonus. Had a great time!

Timothy Jones Guesthouse, Gbah

Alt.: 56.5 masl
Company owned guesthouse next to the main road, but open to guests. Very basic but clean, electricity when the generator is running. Toilet available, no shower, but water is available. Small parking area out front with place for 2 vehicles at most. Standard bush and generator noise, but nothing bad. Eating stalls and shops close by. Friendly staff. They initially said we could pay what we wanted but eventually charged us USD25. Overpriced.

Border

Bo border post

Alt.: -1.0 masl
Leaving Sierra Leone was easy. Get your passport and laissez passer stamped (needed to enter Liberia), show yellow fever certificate. Entering Liberia was somewhat more of a hassle due to bothersome chief immigration officer. Claimed it was impossible to obtain laissez passer on arrival, said it had to be obtained along with the visa, wanted us to go back to Freetown or Conakry to get it. Some talking and waiting later he told his staff to process our laissez passer. USD10/LD1000. Get the visa stamp and show yellow fever certificate. Customs may search your bags but let us pass. Border closes at 6pm, be there around 5pm.

Officer claimed we needed a document he called an 'avant pass' or somesuch because we were entering a 'no-go zone' supposedly. Then his collegue used the distraction to take my keys. They were rather impolite and haughty. Got through with the help of a local and their chief showing up and telling them they were wrong - ask them to call him if you have trouble. Your laissez passer is all you need.

Border

Liberia-Ivory Coast border

Verified: 4 months ago
GPS: 7.253369, -8.363975
Alt.: 374.9 masl
Border was closed from 2014 but officially opened again on 12th of Sept 2016. To exit Liberia, pass by immigration, health port and one more stop, then get exit stamp from Maj. Betty Benson. Corrupt immigration and health officials asked for money, but we told them we spent our last dollars. Major was very nice. Pass by immigration and health to enter Ivory Coast. Meningitis shot apparently mandatory now. Can be issued on the spot for 2500CFA, check vaccine storage temperature and expiration date of vaccine/needles. Border opens around 730am, officially closes at 6pm but with some diplomacy and a few small hand outs may be 'open' until 8pm or so.

Road from Monrovia to Ganta, a perfect tarmac dating from 2014, ends here. Road between Ganta and Sanniquellie has some really bad muddy hills. Sanniquellie to Ivory Coast border and Danané is better. Sanniquellie to Yekepa okay but muddy. All are 4WD/motorbike only. Above conditions were during the rainy season.

Not cheap, but Monrovia is not cheap. Still. This was the cheaper of the bunch at $110 a night. I was sick and it was New Years so i took a vacation from the road (especially those sierra leone roads! Awesome breakfast, reasonable priced restaurant. Good location and guarded parking out the front. Cheapest room was awesome, everything worked well. Fridge/freezer and TV in the room. Staff very helpful. Basically, its a proper European standard hotel For me, great to recover from my illness. just that Monrovia is a pricey place
