Sierra Leone Packages

Sierra Leone means “Lioness Mountains” referring to its rugged terrains. Sierra Leone is one of the smallest republics in Africa. Sierra Leone has the largest natural harbor in the African region, and some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. In the 18th century abolitionists sent rescued slaves back to Africa via Sierra Leone. Freetown, the country’s capital, became the “Province of Freedom”. As more slaves were emancipated in other parts of the world, more people arrived and settled in Sierra Leone. The oldest Cotton tree in the nation is located in Freetown, near the Supreme Court and National Museum. It is revered by the people of Sierra Leone as a symbol of Freedom because it is where the first group of returning slaves gathered to pray and shelter themselves.
