About Sierra Leone

After centuries under British colonial rule, Sierra Leone, having gained its independence, is remembered today for its history of civil wars and massacres. The indigenous population faces significant economic challenges and scarcity due to tribal conflicts that erupted to control the country's rich diamond mines.
In this predominantly Muslim country, including Mendes, Temnes, Limbas, Fulas, and Korankos, most of the population makes a living through labor in diamond mines and fishing. Located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and America, Sierra Leone shares borders with Guinea to the northeast and Liberia to the southeast.
The country experiences a tropical climate, with temperatures consistently above 25 degrees Celsius throughout the year. The tropical climate prevails, with rainfall occurring between May to November and March to April, reaching peak humidity levels. From November to April, the influence of winds from the Sahara Desert leads to the driest season.
Sierra Leone ranked among the poorest countries globally, lacks infrastructure in its cities, such as water supply, sewage systems, proper roads, and buildings. Despite these difficulties, the population, living in makeshift shanties, coexists with the unique nature around them. The natural beauty of Charlotte Falls, Freetown's capital's adornment, and the haunting National Rail Museum, which carries the scars of the war period, are favorite spots for visitors. Safari tours to Tiwai Island provide an opportunity for visitors to witness the natural habitats of wild animals.
Organized festivals and events in Sierra Leone, a country struggling with significant challenges, offer enjoyable moments for locals and tourists. The Sierra Leone International Film Festival in March showcases films made by young and talented filmmakers. It includes training sessions and workshops for those interested in cinema. The Ballanta Music Festival, also held in March, presents a lively and unique celebration with music from different tribal artists.
Given the limited variety of food options in the country, it is recommended to taste seafood and the traditional fufu dish made with vegetables grown exclusively in Africa.
