Freetown overview

Freetown is the capital of Sierra Leone and is also the largest city in this West African country. Once you have landed on your flight to Freetown, you will be exposed to it’s a vibrant and lively atmosphere along with finding some of West Africa’s most picturesque beaches, awe-inspiring mountains, and historic landmarks. Freetown was one of the first British colonies built and the place where liberated slaves were sent, from Britain, America, Jamaica and Canada. Historic monuments, like Kings Yard Gate, which was built in 1805, provide haunting reminders of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The Loma Mountains have the highest peak in Sierra Leone, standing tall at 6380 feet (194m). In good weather the views from the summit are absolutely spectacular. The Peninsula Beaches of Sierra Leone are a must-see. Mass tourism is not quite developed in Freetown. Therefore, many beaches remain untouched and in pristine condition. Some are so remote and quiet that you can enjoy them all to yourself. York Beach is idyllic, with black sand, clear waters and lush tropical surroundings. Turtle Island is a group of eight islands and provides a peaceful getaway. It’s located three hours from Freetown and accessible via speedboat. Sulima Beach is situated between Mano and Moa Rivers and is a favourite spot for surfers. Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary is highly recommended. It’s located in the Western Area Peninsula Forest Reserve and covers 100 acres, and 17,688 hectares of land. Around 100 rescued and orphaned chimpanzees live here and educational tours are provided.
