3 Monrovia and Bomi Lake

After breakfast we travel to Robertsport, a city previously settled by African American freed slaves and was later an allied forces airbase in World War 2. On the way we visit and swim at Bomi Lake at Tubmanburg; a 100 metre deep blue lake suspended midway between the peaks of surrounding mountains. Depending on accessibility at the time we will also visit an abandoned UN base which was used to deal with the Ebola outbreak in 2015.
