Switch Up Your Travel Plans, Visit Sierra Leone


November 8, 2019

When planning a vacation, no one ever really thinks of Sierra Leone as a holiday destination. But I’d like to change that.

Sierra Leone is a small country with a population of about 7 million people. It is famous for “blood diamonds” that were mined and sold during a civil war in order to purchase armaments. Fascinating, right?

There are also many cool attractions that would leave you in awe of the country’s beauty. Here’s a list of things to do while in Swit Salone:

Experience Nature & Wildlife at the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Let your inner History buff out at Sierra Leone National Museum

Take a dip in the ocean at River Number Two Beach

Stock up on some Salone souvenirs at Big Market

Be plunged into the world of bomb rice at Crown Express

Unwind after a day of exploring at The Warehouse

The Jollof Road squad was in Sierra Leone for a few days. Find out what they got up to here.
