Africa - Sierra Leone (PDF Chapter)
This is the Sierra Leone chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
Sierra Leone rises from the Atlantic, dressed in sun-stained hues, rainforest green and the red roads of the north. Freetown evokes the days when freed Caribbean slaves were resettled here, national parks and rainforests shelter endangered species, while sun-seekers can island-hop and explore the archipelagos.
