      Questions about life in Sierra Leone, W Africa

      Sierra Leone May 29, 2013 at 12:09 AM

      My husband got a new job in Sierra Leone, W Africa, and we are about to move there for 2 years. We will be in Makeni, a region in the centre of the country, 3 hours from Freetown. I am a vegetarian so I am concerned there will not be a good selection of fresh vegtables in Freetown, or anywhere.Does anyone know if there are international-standard super markets there? I would also like to know if there are any decent international standard restaurants, hair salons, english book stores, or any expatriate clubs in Freetown. I welcome any advice or expat information of on how life is for a foreigner in Sierra Leone. Thank you.

    • Anti-Malaria drugs

      Sierra Leone Jan 24, 2008 at 2:44 PM


      I will be moving to Sierra Leone for a year. My doctor has suggested I take primaquine as a preventative medication. I am somewhat reluctant to take anti-malarial medication for such a long period of time. In addition, I have come accross indications that chloroquine-resistant forms of malaria are present in Sierra Leone, which, if I have understood correctly, means that priamquine would be ineffective.

      Does anyone have any advice to offer regarding long-term anti-malaria drugs?

    • Dangers

      Sierra Leone Nov 12, 2007 at 12:21 PM

      Could you or someone be more specific about dangers in Sierra Leone? A family member may be traveling there in February as a part of a charitable group's efforts with counseling for injured patients, inspection of the medical facilities, etc. My understanding is that they will be in direct contact with top governmental officials while in Sierra Leone, if that makes a difference.
      Thanks for any feedback.

      Accomodation in Freetown for about a month

      Freetown Jul 25, 2007 at 10:24 AM

      Hi all, i will be in Freetown for around a month this fall and i was wondering if anybody could help with a cheap solution for accomodation for this period. Back in Mali i used to live with a family who had their own small ‘family hostel’ and this is what i have in mind, if anybody can help with a direct contact. If not, any other kind of cheaper accomodation would be just great. Any other good tips regarding the city (including good shopping traditional african artifacts tips, couse i’m so fond of them) but not only, are very much appreciated.
