Sierra Leone is the gem of West Africa. With more than three hundred and sixty kilometres of pristine white beaches, verdant tropical forests cascade down the hills to the golden beaches below.
With six hundred and thirty species of birds, the national parks on the slopes of the mountains are home to many rare birds and primates.
Tiwai Island Wildlife Sanctuary is an extraordinary place, home to eighty rare pygmy hippos and eleven species of primate. A boating trip around the island gives visitors an opportunity to view one of the one hundred and thirty bird species that live there.
