Kono Weekender

Overview

Weekend trip to Kono district. Many people know Kono for its diamonds but have never seen the industry up close.

 

But whilst the diamond mines are fascinating in themselves, there is a lot more to see - Kono is one of the most beautiful districts in the country.

Note that we will spend one night camping in a scenic and secure spot just outside Koidu town. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy nature and unwind from the stresses of the city.

Highlights
  • Tour an artisanal diamond mine

  • Walking tour of Koidu town

  • Scenic views

  • Waterfall hike
