A Trip to Sierra Leone : The Heart of Africa

This is a video shot during my trip in Sierra leone in November 2013 ( making a video for Marine Energie and One Village Partners an NGO ). We travelled deep in the brush, into somes villages where white people haven't been there since 2004, we have met some incredibely friendly people even if the contact was difficult at the beginning.

Thanks To Arthur Chevaugeon my teamate and to all the people we wet there (Charles, Djalo, Elisabeth, Aaron, Jen, Jeff, Bala... )

Music is one track, written as an interlude from my band Blondi's Salvation

For the traveller, Sierra Leone is still West Africa's secret beach destination. Sweet sands rise from the soft waters of the Atlantic, with the backdrop dressed in sun-stained hues, rainforest green and the red, red roads of the north.

In Freetown, colourful stilted houses remember the days when freed slaves from the Caribbean were resettled upon these shores. In the north, the Loma Mountains form the highest point west of Cameroon. Further east national parks and rainforest shelter endangered species like the black-and-white colobus monkey and the elusive pygmy hippo.

The scars of Sierra Leone's civil wars had just healed when the 2014–15 Ebola outbreak knocked the country off its feet once again. Tourism can play an important role in helping its recovery, so join the island-hoppers and adventurers, camp in little-visited rainforests and crack open fresh lobster in the shade of skinny palms and rope-strung hammocks.
