Sierra Leone Back

More than meets the eye

Sierra Leone is one of the world's biggest travel secrets, with an exploration of the idyllic tropical beaches of the Freetown Peninsular reason enough to visit! The stunning white sands of Bureh Beach and River Number Two Beach are a paradise of palm trees, sunshine, calm ocean, and the gentle rhythm of local life. Lush mountains meet white sand and turquoise tropical waters, fitting many people's dream of perfection.

However, many perceptions of Sierra Leone are quite different. With a sad history including slavery, civil war, and disease, Sierra Leone has endured its fair share of problems. Today the country has a functioning democracy and is moving on from a troubled past. The tenacity, affection and spirit of the people of Sierra Leone is what really defines the country. The capital Freetown is fast becoming a must-visit city in Africa and the lively bars and clubs are abuzz with the latest sounds and rhythms!

Further inland is the curious and remote Tiwai Island Reserve, a spectacular sanctuary of wildlife including many primates, a huge array of birds, river turtles, and the elusive and extremely rare pygmy hippopotamus. Back near Freetown you'll find the famous Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary, which rescues chimpanzees and rehabilitates them into the wild.

Sierra Leone has huge potential for tourism, and now is the time to visit!
