Working in Freetown and hardly have the time to spend the weekend with your partner or friends? Maybe you have thought about it but never got down to making it happen. You in town for only the weekend? This itinerary is ideal for you. It appeals to city folks who are looking to get away without venturing into the countryside. Tacugama is only about 20 mins from Freetown but once you get there it feels like you are in remote Sierra Leone.
Day 1: You will be picked up at a time convenient for you and transferred to the Tacugama Sanctuary to spend 2 nights in one of Tacugama’s beautiful eco-lodges overlooking the rain forest.
Day 2: Join the morning tour at Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary meeting the sanctuary’s 80+chimpanzee population. You can spend the afternoon walking to Charlotte Falls and in the Krio villages of Charlotte, Bathurst and Regent. Dinner will be served to you before you final night at the Tacugama Eco-lodge.
Day 3: Have a lazy lie-in or choose to depart immediately after breakfast – it’s entirely up to you. At an agreed time we will pick you up and bring you back down to Freetown where you will spend the rest of the evening.
**Basic breakfast is served but Tacugama is a self catering accommodation facility. There are gas and charcoal cooking facilities available if you would like to prepare your own food for lunch/evening meals; cooking equipment is provided. If required, VSL will provide a private chef who will provide you with freshly cooked dinner.
**Water, soft drinks, beer and wine are available for sale at the Sanctuary.
