Sierra Leone Holidays

Sierra Leone is one of West Africa’s most enticing holiday destinations. The troubles of the 1990s prevented the development of the mass tourism that dominates nearby Gambia, and travel in Sierra Leone remains an exciting journey into undiscovered Africa. You’ll find wonderful welcoming people, 400 kilometres of stunning and virtually deserted white sand beaches and a fascinating heritage entwined with the abolition of slavery. Inland, the country is covered with the lush forests, containing some of highest concentrations of primates and birds in the world, as well as elephants, forest buffalo and antelope in the northern reserves. Holidays to Sierra Leone are for the more adventurous traveller; however our guides are truly outstanding and make sure all our guests have the very best experience on our Sierra Leone holidays.

Our Sierra Leone holiday programme aims to capture the essence of this fascinating country. Each itinerary is tailor-made, drawing on our extensive, first-hand knowledge and the most up-to-date information from our local partners. We also offer an exclusive annual Sierra Leone tour that runs in October.

Tailor-made trips to suit your interests

Whether you want to retrace the footsteps of freed slaves returning to Africa, watch the sunset from a deserted beach, drop into a Krio village in the hills behind Freetown, or head inland to Gola and Tiwai in pursuit of the elusive Pygmy hippo, we can arrange a trip to suit your interests. Travel in Sierra Leone is all about connecting with the places you visit and the people who live there. English is widely spoken and you can expect a warm and genuine welcome wherever you go.

Guides & vehicles

All our Sierra Leone holidays include the use of a private four-wheel drive vehicle and a professional guide and driver. Your guide will explain the history of the areas you visit, offer insights into local life and customs, and help track down the perfect gift to take home. It's the quality and personalities of our guides and drivers that make our Sierria Leone holidays so special.

Personal connection with Sierra Leone

Some of our clients have a personal connection with Sierra Leone, either tracing their ancestry to this part of Africa or through relatives who lived and worked there. We can tailor-make itineraries to include specific areas or buildings with which you have a link and can concentrate on the historical and cultural aspects of the areas or ethnic groups that interest you. We also assist parents who would like to visit their children whilst they are on a gap year in Sierra Leone.
