Sapo National Park is located in south-east Liberia, some 70 km inland from the coastal town of Greenville. The park is an area of moist lowland rainforest, composed of 63% primary and mature secondary forest, 13% swamp-forest, 13% seasonally inundated forest and 11% young secondary forest. The terrain is undulating and low-lying, although Mount Putu in the north-east reaches 310 m and the steep ridges of the north reach 400 m. The park is drained in the west by the Sinoe river (or Pahneh Creek), which forms part of the western boundary, and the Dugbe river in the south-east.
