Tribewanted: John Obey Beach

Tribewanted is a small eco-tourism community living on about 6 acres of beach and lagoon-front land adjacent to the John Obey fishing village on the Freetown peninsula, Sierra Leone.

Their mission is to build a model sustainable community, provide an unforgettable West African beach holiday and help change the perception of Sierra Leone into one that reflects the reality – a beautiful, safe and captivating country.
