YASMIN TELLS YOUTUBE: 2 DAYS AT BONTHE ISLAND & MANIA, SIERRA LEONE



Take a look at the second video on Yasmin TELLS Youtube channel. Back in April of this year, I had the opportunity to visit the southern region of Sierra Leone with start up travel company HSL Tours. Bonthe was a trip to remember, if only I could have stayed a day longer I believe I would have got a more detailed analysis of the island that was once a major export of Piassava. That being said we fit a lot into one evening before making our way to Mania Beach the following day. Mania is just over 30 minutes away from Bonthe Island on the speedboat. The majestic coast line of Mania is inhabited by just four hundred people. The citizens of Mania showed us their village, we also met the Chief and children of Mania Beach before making a 7 hour journey back to Freetown, Sierra Leone. I hope you enjoy the video and learn something new about another region of Sierra Leone.
