Welcome to Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone is on the Atlantic Ocean in West Africa. It is bordered to the north and east by Guinea and, to the south by Liberia.
Along the coast are a mix of palm fringed beaches and mangrove swamps, which lead on to savanna-covered low plains to rocky scarp and hill country to a plateau in the interior. Further east the region becomes mountainous.
It has some of the best beaches in the world, rainforest jungles with monkeys swinging through the trees, a rich colonial heritage, and some stunning scenery.
