RT @DerekLoudermilk: Founder of @Tribewanted .@benkeene on how to build your #tribe and get back to #nature http://t.co/knjsbFhqFk http://t…


We are a small eco-tourism community living on about 6 acres of beach and lagoon-front land adjacent to the John Obey fishing village on the Freetown peninsula, Sierra Leone. Our mission is to build a model sustainable community, provide an unforgettable West African beach holiday and help change the perception of Sierra Leone into one that reflects the reality – a beautiful, safe and captivating country

We have several types of accommodation at Tribewanted John Obey – all come with bedding, mosquito nets and towels.

John Obey Community & Fishing Village

20 miles South of Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown, John Obey is situated between ‘York’ and ‘Bureh Town’.

Welcome to Sierra Leone

"Somewhere between waking up to peaceful lagoon views; swimming in a warm, empty sea; and feasting on spicy pumpkin stew, I started to wonder: Why isn’t this place swarmed with tourists?"
