Tips / Destination

There are plenty of lovely places to stay in Sierra Leone, and we’ve rounded up some of the best.


In Freetown, the capital, head to Freetown Oasis. This guesthouse offers nine rooms with sea views and a great garden, plus there is an on-site café with healthy meals.


Down the peninsula from Freetown is the Tacugama Sanctuary Lodge. It’s easy to get there and back for an overnight stay from the capital, but the setting is wild enough to feel like you’ve made a long journey. Think cabins looking over misty forests with chimpanzees chattering around.


Another top spot on the peninsula is Ategbeh Garden, a small guesthouse surrounded by gardens and farmland. Each cabin has a little veranda to look out over the trees, and the kitchen has a great reputation.


Sierra Leone is known for its beaches, and the most famous is River Number 2. The best place to stay is Cockle Point, with views over the beach from four thatched bungalows. Ask for a tent if you are on a budget.


If you want to experience rural life, head to Rogbonko Village in Makeni. This community-run guesthouse lets visitors get involved in daily life, learning to cook local food and exploring the surrounding rivers.
