    Embark on Your Life as an Expat in Sierra Leone

    The West African country of Sierra Leone is famous for its coastal swamps, incredible mountain ranges, and its wealth of natural resources. The capital of Freetown is an exciting and fun place to live, is home to a number of expats, and has the third-largest natural harbor in the world. The economy in Sierra Leone is largely driven by mining, in particular iron ore. A number of expats move to Sierra Leone to work for multinational companies or to volunteer. While living in Sierra Leone can sometimes be challenging, a number of expats in the country enjoy their lifestyle and a number of expatriates live in Freetown.
