  • Favourite spot in Salone. Such a peaceful place, very close to Freetown yet far away from the buzz of the city. Lovely little huts to stay over, hearing the chimpanzees living their chimpanzee life...  more »
  • Definitely recommend to go and spend a night in Tacugama in their eco lodges in a little jungle - it is a special experience. Beautiful surrounding, good food, amazing staff who is taking care of the cimpanzees. We did a tour and a long hike and we had a great time!!
  • A nice place, yoga center, nice hotel and very safe.
