Step out of Freetown with an excursion to Bureh Beach in Bure Town--about 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Lumley Beach, examine the collection at Sierra Leone National Museum, stroll through John Obey Beach, and make a trip to Cotton Tree.

Cape Town, South Africa to Freetown is an approximately 24-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Cape Town to Freetown due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Cape Town in July, plan for somewhat warmer days in Freetown, with highs around 33°C, while nights are much warmer with lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Kamakwie.
