Best things to do and see in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is a country located in West Africa, and its capital, Freetown, is known to be one of the world's greatest natural harbours. One of the most popular events in Sierra Leone each year is the Sierra Leone International Film Festival. Every March, this festival showcases the work of talented filmmakers from across the globe. If you happen to be a movieholic, this festival will definitely interest you and help you engage in discussions and workshops across six days. If you are there in March, it might also be worth checking out the Ballanta Music Festival. With two days filled with performances by local musicians, the festival sees both international and domestic attendees ready to enjoy evenings with a wide array of musical genres. Just make sure to find your Sierra Leone flight deals and event tickets in advance, since March is a popular month to visit Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leonean cuisine is similar to that of many West African countries. Rice is typically served with every meal and is combined with commonly eaten meats such as goat, chicken and beef, pork being a lot less common. A meal without rice is usually considered incomplete. Rice is usually eaten by being rolled into a ball and then dipped into a sauce, commonly made with palm or coconut oil and various spices. The fruit commonly eaten by Sierra Leoneans are guavas, watermelons, mangoes and oranges, and they are all easily found in the region. Stews can easily be Sierra Leone's national dish – with many flavours and varieties, they are a fundamental part of the country's cuisine. An important cooking ingredient is cassava leaves, and they can be mixed with meat, fish, vegetables, stews and more. A common beverage in Sierra Leone is ginger beer: made out of pure ginger and can be had with or without sweeteners. When visiting Sierra Leone, keep in mind that talking during a meal and reaching over the platter is considered rude. You should only eat what's in front of where you're seated.

Whether you are a fan of tropical beaches with soft sand, rainforests and tall palm trees, or fortresses and other historical landmarks, Sierra Leone has many unique places that can steal any traveller's heart. You're definitely going to visit Freetown, the capital and the most common arrival place when you book flights to Sierra Leone. It's a great representation of Sierra Leone's culture; it's ethnically diverse with many influences from other parts of Africa. While you're there, you should definitely visit the National Museum to get an insight into the country's history and St George's Cathedral, built in the 19th century to commemorate sailors lost at sea. You should also check out The Big Market to find typical Sierra Leonean items such as local crafts and antique masks. If you are up for an adventure, you should head north to Outamba-Kilimi National Park, the best safari destination in Sierra Leone, and enjoy nature and wildlife to get your safari fix. For those that love sport, Mount Bintumani is the highest peak in the country and is a preferred destination for thrill-seekers.

Everyone that wishes to enter Sierra Leone must have a valid passport with at least three months validity. Citizens of the Economic Community of West African States can enter visa-free, but residents of other countries must apply for a visa online at least a week before their planned travels. The visa is valid for three months and for stays of up to 30 days.
