If your goal is to fish off the grid in untouched waters and you're after a great array of species with some world records lurking in the waters, then Sierra Leone will not disappoint.
You will be fishing off beaches, sand spits, mangroves, rivers and off the boat, with an experienced guide to offer advice and tips at all times. Groups will be rotated so that all anglers can fish the various locations and styles in our itinerary on a rotation basis.
This is the land of rod-breaking species and with no tackle shops for miles we recommend you bring the right gear to cover the wide variety of fish you will encounter.


Sierra Leone


This is a remote, fishing-focused operation with no frills, originally a mining camp. Therefore we don’t promote Sulima and Sherbro Islands as a non-angler destination. There is no pool to lounge at and no spa service around the corner! Only expect brilliant fishing!
However, we promise that you will be in an untouched paradise, with some of West Africa's most beautiful palm-lined beaches and rivers on your doorstep. Between the Gola Rain Forest Reserve up the road and Tiwai Island Sanctuary up the Moa river, you will be truly spoilt by the wonders West Africa has to offer. Included in this tour are camping trips to fish on Turtle Islands.
Because of the remote nature and location of the camp, it is recommended that you bring all of your own fishing equipment and enough of it to cover any breakages by angry fish!
