Outamba Kilimi National Park
If you want to see wildlife in Sierra Leone, Outamba Kilimi is the place to go.
You are almost certain to see hippos and monkeys when you go on a canoe ride down the river, and other animals we have sighted include elephants, warthogs, deer, and crocodiles. There have even been sightings of a lion in the park!
Outamba Kilimi National Park is, well, rustic. The park has not been well funded and we bring all our own equipment, including tents and mattresses, and food. Thepark's conservationists are constantly struggling against wildlife poaching and environmental degradation. With dubious timber, gold, diamond, and blackstone industries, what is outside the park is just as interesting as anything inside. A real eye opening experience.
Prices may vary based on numbers, seasonality, and other specifications.
