On the river

Take to the Number Two River in our traditional fishing boat and motor up river to take in the gorgeous waterfall. The dry season reduces the waterfall to a series of gurgling brooks allowing you to clamber over exposed boulders and explore the rock pools. The wet season converts the waterfall into an impressive display of nature’s power.

Engage with local wildlife including monkeys, crocodiles (don’t worry they only eat fish), monitor lizards and abundant bird life.

Fishermen can catch decent sized grouper and a variety of smaller fish using fly, spinners and bait.
Our boatman can also show you how to dive for cockles and gather mangrove oysters. We will cook up anything you decide to bring back with you.

A small rowing boat is available for fishermen and bird watchers who fancy rowing up the river with the incoming tide and drifting quietly back down when it turns.

On the beach

The two closest beaches are unique for having pure white sand, the only ones to do so on Sierra Leone's famous peninsula.

Get up early to watch local fishermen strain on the ropes as they haul in their catch straight on to the beach in traditional draw-chain fishing. Mingle with local villagers who come every morning to buy their fish. If you choose to buy something yourself, it can be on our BBQ 30 minutes later.

Spend the day hanging out on Number Two Beach (5 minutes walk) or Tokeh Beach (20 minutes walk). Laze in the sun and splash in the surf on beaches rated by the Lonely Planet as "some of the most perfect palm-lined sands on the continent".

And at the end of a perfect day, you have a front row seat to one of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet.

Trips can sometimes be arranged to go sea fishing and to visit the Banana Islands.
