Don’t be put off by a history of political instability and Ebola, there are plenty of reasons to book a trip to Sierra Leone.
First of all, the country is now safe and Ebola-free, so you can enjoy the beaches, jungles and islands without worry. There is more than 220 miles of coastline in the country, with incredible stretches of sand to enjoy. The Western Peninsula is the most famous beach spot, but there are loads more to choose from.
Sierra Leone’s jungles are home to some incredibly rare wildlife, including pygmy hippos and 11 species of primate. Wildlife spotters will be in heaven at Tiwai Island Wildlife Sanctuary, an ecotourism project where you can spot animals as you walk the trails or take a boat trip.
The country is also known for its great food culture, with seafood a popular choice. Keep your eye out for groundnut stew and cassava leaves, as well as the local Star beer.
Sierra Leone has an incredible amount of natural attractions, but the capital city, Freetown, is also worth visiting. There aren’t many tourist sights here, but the atmosphere and the raucous party scene mean you won’t regret booking a few nights.
