Hitting the ground running in Sierra Leone

An ecological wonder to compare to Costa Rica
Hello Sierra Leone, whose natural attractions are being revealed to the world after its long civil war. Long sandy beaches backed by tropical forest, jungle sanctuaries for exotic species and reserves for families of chimpanzees are ready for tourism. What the country doesn’t have yet are the tourists, who are missing an ecological wonder to compare to Madagascar or Costa Rica.
