Day 1. Today we will pick you up for the trip to Robgbonko Village Retreat which will take around 3 hours. You will stop in Makeni with your guide to have a look around this provincial town after which you will have lunch before setting off for the final hour to Rogbonko via Magburuka.
Rogbonko Mathaka (meaning “The Place in The Forest”), is located 30 mins from Magburaka Junction. With no electricity, running water, telephones and little contact from the outside world, you will be sleeping in a traditional house, meeting the villagers, eating their food, witnessing their culture and sharing their daily lives. The tour guide will accompany you for forest walks and a tour of some of the farms and explain the relevance of daily life in the village. Learn about the different activities that keep the villagers occupied and satisfied with such a humble life. Overnight in traditional hut (with toilet and bathroom).
Day 2. Your full day in Rogbonko will be spent walking through the village talking to villagers and learning about how the local community operates. You have the option of taking short rides in a local dug out canoe, or walking through the farming fields.
Day 3. After breakfast you will have some time to interact with the local community to say your goodbyes before setting off for Freetown. There is no rush to leave first thing in the morning and you can take your time to do more of what interests you.
