Freetown — 7 nights

Straddling an undulating coastline, Freetown serves as the capital and largest city of Sierra Leone.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at National Railway Museum and John Obey Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Freetown: River Number Two Beach (in Sussex), Lakka Beach (in Lakka) and Bureh Beach (in Bure Town). And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Bunce Island, explore the galleries of Sierra Leone Peace Museum, admire all the interesting features of Cotton Tree, and pause for some serene contemplation at St George's cathedral.

Planning Freetown trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Brussels, Belgium to Freetown is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Brussels in May, expect Freetown to be much hotter, temps between 36°C and 29°C. You will have some time to spend on the 25th (Wed) before leaving for home.

Rich in history, natural wonders, and picturesque landscapes, Sierra Leone remains an unappreciated destination largely thanks to the impact the civil war of the 1990s had on the country's international reputation. The coastal areas offer easy access to fine sand beaches and offshore islands, little explored by foreign visitors and therefore unspoiled by commercial tourism. The capital, established by freed slaves from the Caribbean, represents a popular starting point for trips to Sierra Leone, with a colorful look to it, a lively atmosphere, and good onward connections to the mountains of the north and mangrove swamps and rainforest to the east.
