Sierra Leone is a small country in Western Africa, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Guinea and Liberia. The country owes its name to the 15th-century Portuguese explorer Pedro de Sintra, the first European to sight and map Freetown harbour.
In 1991 civil war broke out and Sierra Leone entered the darkest decade in its recent history. Peace was restored in 2002 and, since then, the country has blossomed. Sierra Leone is now on a fast track to development under a multi-party democracy and is hailed as one of the safest countries in West Africa.
The vibrant and energetic capital city of Freetown is located in the Western Area of Sierra Leone framed by the majestic Sierra Lyoa mountains rising behind it.
The city commands one of the world’s largest natural harbours.

It has ranges of Mountains, Hills, Valleys and Wetlands; comprising unique and endangered species. It is also home to Outamba Kilimi National Park.
English is the official language of Sierra Leone yet it is Krio, which originated with the freed slaves (Creole people) who returned to Sierra Leone after slavery was abolished, that is the lingua franca. Krio is widely spoken in Freetown and to a lesser degree in rural areas. Sierra Leoneans will be thrilled to hear a visitor use some basic Krio words such as: ‘kusheh’ meaning hello, ‘tenki’ – thank you, ‘do ya’ – please and ‘how di bodi?’ – how are you?
