Description

Outamba-Kilimi National Park, in Kabala, Sierra Leone .


Comments / picturesOutamba-Kilimi National Park is located in northwest Sierra Leone near the border with the Republic of Guinea. The park is divided into two areas, Outamba (741 km²) and Kilimi (368 km²). The area became a game reserve in 1974, and was made a National Park in January 1986. From Freetown it is reached by traveling to Makeni on excellent, new blacktop, from that point via the town of Kamakwie the road is dirt and becomes more rough closer to the park. Vehicles must cross the Little Scarcies River by ferry. There are camping facilities there as well as some primitive huts with double beds. The vegetation is a mixture of jungle and savannah.
