What to do in Sierra Leone: The country where you can have your own Diamond!

Let's explore together this nation on the west coast of Africa that has a rich yet tumultuous history and vibrant culture. Sierra Leone, with its picturesque landscapes, is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered.


We will start our trip in the city of Freetown, the capital, where you can visit the Cotton Tree, a national symbol. We will then go to Outamba-Kilimi National Park, famous for its diverse wildlife. The third stop is at the beautiful Peninsula Beach, where the sea meets white sand. We cannot leave out Banana Island, an idyllic place with rich marine life. Last but not least, the city of Bo, the second largest urban center in the country, rich in culture and history.


The official language is English, although many local languages are also spoken. The currency is the Leone and, unfortunately, Brazilians need a visa to enter the country.

Regarding the socioeconomic and political situation, Sierra Leone has been recovering after a long civil war that ended in 2002. Despite the difficulties, the country has demonstrated incredible resilience and the economy has grown, especially in the areas of agriculture, mining and tourism.


And now, the great curiosity of our title! Sierra Leone is famous for its diamond deposits. The country even has a program called "Diamond for Development" that allows tourists to buy diamonds directly from the mines! That's something unique, isn't it?
