Sierra Leone - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Tiwai Wildlife Sanctuary

Tiwai Wildlife Sanctuary is located between two arms of the Moa River and is linked to the western edge of South Gola forest.  Extending to 1200 hectares, Tiwai was gazetted as a Wildlife Sanctuary in 1987.  The local chiefdom supports the retention of the island, and other river islands as critical natural areas, which will maintain a vital ecosystem corridor between Gola Forest and the Kambui Hill South Forest Reserve. The island has a rich biodiversity with eleven species of primates and wild chimpanzees who have mastered the use of hand implements- stones and sticks - for cracking open hard nuts.
