A groundbreaking trip through jungles, beaches and history
With no time difference from the UK, widely spoken English, decent flying times, wildlife and the best beaches in West Africa, few places offer as much promise for tourism metered with so little development as Sierra Leone. Join one of the very first group trips to this beautiful and beguiling country and find out why this is one of the world's most exciting new destinations. The infamous civil war ended in 2002 and today's pioneering visitors will find a friendly and welcoming culture refreshingly unused to tourism as well as chimpanzees, beach-fringed tropical islands and a fascinating slavery-era history.
