You can't visit Outamba-Kilimi without taking to the water. Getting up in the early hours and gliding down the Kabba River in search of hippos is a highlight of a trip here, and sightings are almost a given. Even without them, a trip down river, spotting birds and monkeys in the trees and enjoying the gentle hum of nature all around you, is an incredible experience.
Rainforest treks are another highlight. While you're unlikely to see any bush elephants, you'll spot monkeys, duikers and bushbuck, and maybe even chimpanzees. The surrounding forest is home to Sierra Leone's highest waterfall – Yomba Falls.
