Eco-Lodge Booking Information

Only a 40 minute drive from Freetown and set in spectacular rainforest habitat, our eco-lodges are the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the tranquil setting amongst birds, butterflies and wild chimpanzees.

Explore nearby Krio villages and take in the beauty of surrounding waterfalls with a stroll on one of our marked nature trails or laze in a hammock and admire the natural setting – the choice is yours!

All proceeds from the lodges and tours go directly towards the animals and conservation projects of the sanctuary.
