Travel with Children

Travel outside of Freetown and the Freetown peninsula involves rough roads, long journeys and scant medical facilities, so can be daunting with younger children. In Freetown, there are plenty of Western restaurants with child-friendly menus, and some of the more upmarket hotels, such as the Family Kingdom resort or Country Lodge, for example, have child friendly facilities such as high chairs, cots, play areas or children's swimming pools. Many top end hotels offer day access to their facilities for around Le50,000 per person. Freetown Aqua Sports Club also has a swimming pool and a playground. On the peninsula, River No 2 and Tokeh Beach are great for kids, with clean sand and calm water.
