Guinea in detail

Travel with Children

Guinea is not well-suited to travelling with children. Facilities and attractions for children are essentially non-existent, although there is a play park, Jardin 2 Octobre, in Conakry.

Journey times can be very long and on dreadful roads. You will not find any kind of baby beds, high chairs, car seats or other child equipment anywhere outside Conakry. Nappies (diapers) and baby food are available in one or two supermarkets, but outside Conakry even these can be hard to track down.

On the plus side, Guineans will be delighted to meet your children and will fuss over them endlessly.
