Sierra Leone

"Sierra Leone has so many cultures and languages. I can only speak 3 of the languages. To celebrate [my heritage], I use my own culture and tribe, Fula…but that does not stop me from accepting other cultural groups. I can mingle with any culture."

Who we are

Lakka lives and breathes beach tourism. We’re used to tourists, we love tourists and we want more tourists! We have a stunning, long beach, plenty of places to sit under an umbrella and enjoy the sun, read a book and sip from a coconut (or sip something stronger).

There are plenty of places for you to stay with us – several privately owned beach quarters and we are busy developing a community owned and operated community tourism facility (under construction right now just as this web site is – so ask us how progress is going when you come by!)

Those of us not involved in tourism support ourselves through fishing, farming, gardening and sand mining.

We are Sherbro, Temne and Mende, Fullah, Limba, Kono and Loko.

History

Lakka was founded by Pa Lakka, a Sherbro fisherman.

Our heroes: Pa David Johnson encouraged investors to develop some of our land so that the youth in our community would have jobs.  Mr Zechariah Douglas is also admired by many of us because he brought investors who constructed a hotel on village land. Mr Bruno Gaston is one of our heroes because of his role in bringing electricity to us!
