Sierra Leone is a country on the west coast of Africa renowned for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Its capital city Freetown was founded in 1792 as a province of freedom for returned slaves from the US, the Caribbean and the UK, and for recaptive slaves from different countries in Africa. It is the only place on the west coast of Africa, where the majestic mountains rise directly from the sea.
Given the strong historical and cultural ties between Sierra Leone, the Caribbean and the USA, the AfriCaribbean Music Festival in partnership with Miami Carnival, is bringing the FIRST ever AfriCaribbean Music Festival to Sierra Leone. The festival is designed to bring together Africans, Caribbeans, African-Americans and Afro-Latinos through Soca and African music, art and culture, in one of the most beautiful countries in the world!
The Promise of Africa has partnered with the AfriCaribbean Music Festival to welcome guests to Sierra Leone and ensure that they experience the Promise of Africa’s all-inclusive luxury travel, with VIP access to all festival activities, while also visiting the must-see attractions in Freetown during their 1-week visit!
Guests will learn about the history and culture of Freetown, visit the historic Bunce Island slave castle where a large proportion of African Americans were taken from Sierra Leone directly to South Carolina, visit the Tacugama Chimpanzee sanctuary, and go on a beach hopping tour to see the gold, white and black sandy beaches of the Freetown peninsula. Guests will also experience all AfriCaribbean Music Festival events including multiple beach and pool parties, Jourvert, Carnival and Lantern Parades (costumes available), and an Africana ball!
