Thomas, West Africa Discovery's CEO, will be travelling to Sierra Leone for a research project he is conducting for his MSc in Responsible Tourism Management. As part of his travels, he wants to involve all of you in his journey of discovery (itinerary, experiences, photos, facts, stories, videos, etc...). To start things off, he has plotted his planned itinerary including information about the places he will visit and the things he hopes to do. Regular updates will be posted on this page to keep you involved in his journey.

Fancy spending a week on a tropical beach all-expenses paid?

Ever had a dream about being part of a tribe and living the tribal life?

Interested in sustainable development technologies?

Have an interest in local heritage?

Wouldn't mind participating in the following activities: sunbathing, building, swimming, cooking, canoeing upriver, trekking, fishing, beach football, skill sharing, teaching, drumming, bonfires, and eating great seafood?

Have an urge to be the first to discover a new destination?

Want to make a difference in a country looking to change its image?

It takes one person to go there and come back to tell their friends what a good time they had in order to change perceptions. This is what Sorrell Golding did, and now she has written an inspiring article that hopefully, as she puts it, will give Sierra Leone the acknowledgement it deserves for being such a friendly, stunning, unforgettable country!

Excellent! Great group to start changing the image of Sierra Leone for the best through tourism projects. All the better if these tourism project offer unique and fulfilling experiences for the visitor as well as benefit and involve the local communities in the destination and allow for the proliferation and protection of the surrounding local natural, cultural and historical heritage.

There are various sustainable and responsible tourism projects that are ongoing in Sierra Leone, and there are many more to come. If you are curious to find out what kind of exciting holiday ideas you can find in such a beautiful and awe-inspiring country, click here.
