John Obey Beach
Despite being renowned as one of the Sierra Leone's most stunning beaches John Obey is often totally deserted. It’s also home to the TRIBEWANTED community project where we’ll camp for a night (with possible options to upgrade to rooms/earth domes) and learn about this innovative sustainable tourism project.
Tribewanted’s mission is to build sustainable communities in amazing places that benefit locals and visiting members; inspiring positive change within and far beyond the village.
In October 2010 the first members of the tribe arrived on Sierra Leone’s John Obey Beach, 20 miles south of the capital and started to build a partnership and friendship with the fishing community of John Obey. 30 full-time earth-builders, carpenters, cooks, farmers, gardeners, managers and guides led the development. The first season saw the building of cal-earth dome classic and the honeydome, the sea bright solar tower, beach kitchen, first two VIP Shacks on the lagoon, and permaculture gardens.
You’ll be able to get involved and lend a hand on our free day or just make the most of the downtime and relax on the beach and party when the sun goes down – a perfect way to start our adventure through West Africa!
