Bradt's Sierra Leone remains the only English-language guide dedicated to this unique West African destination, one of only three countries where the uber-elusive pygmy hippo can be found and where coastal mountains and sheltered beaches are the stuff of daydreams. It offers comprehensive background information and on-the-ground practical information, and is an ideal companion for tourists, diplomats, business people, volunteers and international workers. Includes coverage of newly declared eco-tourist sites as well as the trans-boundary 'peace park' of Gola Forest National Park, shared with neighbouring Liberia. Also covered are Freetown's new beach music festival and the Sierra Leone Marathon, shortlisted for 'best marathon' in the 2017 Running Awards, as well as details of everything from where to visit rescued chimpanzees to touring the traditional wooden-board homes of the Krio people, descendants of repatriated slaves from the Americas and Europe. Sierra Leone continues to be one of the best beach destinations in West Africa, and one of the region's best trekking destinations, given the varied topography and the presence of Mount Bintumani, West Africa's highest peak.
