Sierra Leone Travel Guides

I remember standing on the beach in Sierra Leone and thinking: when the world thinks “Sierra Leone” they should see this.  Most people’s minds are immediately tossed to images of blood diamonds, child soldiers, and brutal warfare at the mere mention of Sierra Leone.  but that’s the beauty of travel is that you get to create your own images.  My image of Sierra Leone will be one of beautiful beaches, some incredible wildlife and some of the friendliest people on the planet.  If there is any country in this part of West Africa that has a real opportunity to blossom as a tourism destination, it’s Sierra Leone.

Highlights: No. 2 River, Tiwai Island, Freetown
Backpacker’s Budget: 40-55 USD a day
