Camping in the African bush

I am now spending most of my time setting up the operations in the agroforestry farm I am building between the villages of Borgbuabu and Giema, in the Kenema region, south east of Sierra Leone.
It takes about 5 hours to get there from Freetown and although I could have stayed in the villages, I have decided to start camping by the plantation.

Camping is free and it’s great to be close to nature, waking up with the birds singing.
A little boy brings us water every morning so that we could shower. We have all we need!

Staying in a tent also gives me privacy after long days of work.
When I am out and about on the farm, people tend to congregate around me, I am the new kid on the block!
