Short Break - Tiwai Island Wildlife Sanctuary (3 days)

tn_tiwaiLooking to get away for a long weekend? This itinerary takes you out of the city and close to nature. Tiwai Island is Sierra Leone’s first community conservation programme and has continued to grow from since it was  established. As one of the last remaining tracts of Upper Guinean Congolese Rainforest, Tiwai is a wildlife sanctuary of profound ecological importance.



Day 1. You will be transferred to the Tiwai Island Wildlife Sanctuary home of over 700 different plant species, over 135 different bird species and the rare pygmy hippopotamus. You will spend 2 nights in the simple camp on Tiwai Island.

Day 2: Spend the entire day exploring the forest with your guide or go on a boat trip on the Moa River.  If you’re really lucky you may spot the pygmy hippo if you go on a night boat ride.

Day 3: Depart after breakfast for the drive to Freetown.
